February 25th, Saturday.
Well, actually, it kicked off yesterday with a kid's parade, concert and fireworks down at Pier Park. We had a very nice view of the fireworks display from our motel.
In just a little bit, I will be walking over to Pier Park for concerts by Cajun singer Jo-El Sonnier and one of my favorite country singers, Aaron Tippin and then back to the motel for the parade which passes right by us and then another fireworks show on the City Pier.
