    In March, our monthly theme is FESTIVAL.

    Can you think of locations where festivals are held? Or the name of a festival? Or an activity associated with a festival? As we were very busy in February and didn’t seem to have much time for a theme that should have been easy, let’s hope we have a bit more time for this one.

    Let’s go!

    Because I want more people to jump in the game, I will ask to NOT post two consecutive answers (unless there is a 24 hour period without an answer since it could mean we are stuck)

    K- King Mango Strut- Festival is not in the title but it is in the listing of festivals under alternate festivals. Pretty funny

    The King Mango Strut is an annual satirical parade held in Coconut Grove, Florida. Founded by Glenn Terry and Bill Dobson in 1982, it is held on the last Sunday of each year. The parade, which uses the motto “Putting the ‘nut’ in Coconut Grove”, is composed of floats mocking local and national stories from the previous year
