San Carlos Hometown Days is an annual event that my children look forward to every year. There is a hokey parade that has more people marching in the parade than actually watching the parade. There are bounce houses, a rock climbing wall, bungee/trampoline jumping, a zip-line, food from local restaurants, booths with exhibits about local causes, an art competition, the school district librarians sell used books, and more. I walked with my kids in the parade this year. It was fun, but with the exception of the group right in front of us, I missed the whole parade. It was fun to see a few friends along the way, but next year, I think I might just watch. I want to see the fire trucks and the marching bands. Everyone loves a parade!
