2019 Winter Carnival Torchlight Parade

This parade was truly a spectacular event! For my first time ever, I attended the Vulcan Victory Torchlight Parade and it made the whole celebration of Winter Carnival even more fun! Tessa and I rode on the West Wind float with our dearest Stephanie Sutton, who was a West Wind Princess in 2004. Before the parade started we got to mingle around with the visiting royalty and it was so nice to see some of the girls I met at Queen’s weekend, like the girls from New Brighton, Woodbury, South St. Paul, and Cottage Grove. Of course the Rice Street ladies were there as well, and it’s always a great time when they’re around. Overall it was a lot warmer than last weekend so that really made it easy to keep our smiles on, since our cheeks weren’t numb this time. We love the West Winds, and wouldn’t have wanted to ride with anyone else, YEE HAW!!!
