Banned Little Girls Allowed In Parade, Little Mr. Finger Dropped
They're called the Redwood City Twirlers. They're about a half dozen little girls with batons. They were kicked out of the 2006 Fourth of July Parade in Redwood City because they were allegedly too slow, causing delays of three minutes or so making attendees of the Northern California town think the famous parade was over.
But the girls found a host in nearby Corte Madera who allowed the Redwood City Twirlers in their parade this afternoon. Thank God a news crew was there with a stopwatch.
Meanwhile in Patterson, a 4-year-old who was recently crowned Little Mr. Apricot was dethroned after he flipped off the crowd. His mother explains that "he was only saying that he was number one" but Patterson doesn't play that.
Today a different little boy was paraded through the town as the new Little Mr. Apricot, and yes, the press was there in full force.
