Holy Cross Parade, Festival, and Street Dance — Aug 14th

For the third consecutive year, EIM plans to take over the town of Holy Cross, IA for the annual Holy Cross Parade, Festival, and Street Dance!

Our MINIs will be lined up at 10:30 am on Saturday, August 14th to prepare for the start of the parade at noon. We’ll have a car wash station set up for early arrivals who want to spruce up. The time line and locations may be found after the jump (more…) below.

Our local EIM hosts Linda and Tom R. have once again graciously invited all of us MINI folk and their families to come to their house after the parade for wonderful food, drink, and fellowship. Take a peek at their newly remodeled, MINI-themed bathroom — that’s worth the trip alone! There will also be a variety of outdoor and indoor games available, and we’ll be right across the street from the heart of the Festival for those who want to take in the charity auction, music, and other offerings.

Feel free to follow the preparatory discussion in our associated NAM Discussion Thread (<–link)

Finally, RSVPs — either using the link in the Event Calendar Entry (<–link) or by commenting on this post using the comments link above — are greatly appreciated so our hosts can plan for the number of guests.

The kids just love MINIs on parade!

    Let Linda know if you’re planning on bringing something to share for the post-parade picnic, and the identity of the item you’re contributing. It will help diversify the selection of side dishes!
