|This building fascinated me for some reason.|
Every December, Chattanooga, TN has a 24 hour festival called MAINx24. It celebrates Main Street and the surrounding Southside. It's completely organized by merchants, residents and friends of the Southside community and features events all day long, from parades to music to poetry readings to chili cook-offs.
We tried to make it to the parade at 11 but ran late. Were we ended up parking ended up being at the end of the parade route, so we still got to see some of it.
I think the kids enjoyed themselves.
They got their faces painted at a dentists office.
They pet puppies needing homes.
Saw some really cool bikes and cars from Art 120.
And climbed in a fire truck.
Rio behaved, except for making a fool of himself barking at the dogs he wanted to play with (I seriously need to figure out how to stop him from doing that! I get tired of having to tell people that he's not vicious, he just wants to play).

Mary-Beth kindly let me borrow these pictures from the parade and Muttville on Main from their DOGood for Dog Friendly Chattanooga Facebook page:

There were some absolutely a-DOR-able costumes out there!

But these two girls were BY FAR my favorite!!!
There were equally adorable "naked" pups too. :-)

Muttville on Main had tons of vendors and rescues.
