Now that our home renovation project is complete, we took advantage of this beautiful fall morning to wander downtown…now only a ten minute walk! The local paper promised a lot of activity, and we wanted to enjoy the last bit of sunshine before the forecasted rain arrives. In true Ashland style, the day provided something for everyone. To fortify ourselves we indulged in a delicious cinnamon roll, irresistibly displayed at the Saturday Market.
We're learning that Ashland loves its parades. The fifth annual Southern Oregon Pride Festival hosted a parade through downtown this morning. A rollicking display of colorful entries with spirited participants filled the streets, waving and shouting to a cheering crowd.
We followed the parade to Lithia Park where more Pride events were planned. We continued beyond the festivities, enjoying the changing season as fall color took over.
