A full cadre of 18 MINIs made a great showing for the folks in Marion during this year’s Swamp Fox Festival Parade. Everyone loves MINIs! Thanks to all for coming out and joining us. Additional thanks to our parade coordinator lapshoffman for all of the hard prep work, and to he and 05MINI for the great MINI baubles and bling. Sincere EIM special thanks go out as well to Alexandra, our “Miss Eastern Iowa MINIs 2009” who represented us with grace and style.

    I want to stress that you don’t have to be part of the EIM group to participate with us in the parade. We’d like anyone who wants to show off their MINI or Mini to come along!

    Registrations for entry into the parade are now closed…but we hope you’ll come out, support us, and enjoy the Festival!

    The Swamp Fox Festival Parade as a whole starts rolling at 10:15 am. Look for all the MINIs somewhere in the middle of the procession!

    subhash, sorry no reply in time…I think by the time of your comment most of us were already at the parade site prepping our MINIs!
