... started.... Wrong... When we got to the recommended location at about 9:30AM there was not a single person in sight... Soon enough we learned that this location was towards the end of the parade, hence why there was no crowd yet formed. We decided to hop back on the tram (which we rode illegally for the 5th time that weekend), and head towards the start of the parade. Because we woke up so early, we were actually there early enough to see the floats and parade ...
