What a fun time to get to go with family to see the parade downtown for the St. Louis Cardinals, the new World Series Champions!! We got to our spot by Union Station just as the parade was starting. It was pretty hard to get good photos of the parade and players, but if you are a Cardinal fan, perhaps you will recognize some of them. At least I got a good picture of the Rally Squirrel! The Clydesdales led the parade with manager Tony LaRussa riding on the wagon. Don't think I got a picture of Lance Berkman but he rode by early on, a former Houston Astro. I even saved some of the red and white confetti for a souvenir!
Walking to the parade. You can see the crowds of Cardinal red along the curb up ahead. That's the old Union Station on the right with the red roof and of course the St. Louis Arch up ahead. You can just about see the Old Courthouse at the base of the arch by the flag.
What a view!
And then dinner on The Hill at Guido's with delicious St. Louis toasted ravioli (that nobody understands anywhere else!), a pizza, and a glass of chianti! Fabulous day!
