I’ve never liked the vendors concept at Apple Blossom – especially the street vendors who roam the parade route with the grocery cart full of goodies that just drive all parents bonkers. My kids are grown and have almost OUTgrown the stage where they want stuff from those carts. I’ve never liked the vendors…until now. You see, the “in” items now all have lights. Sure there are still plenty of noise makers, but the lighted toys seem to be more popular than ever. And not just with the kids – I like them, too. It’s kind of like a pre-fireworks show for me.
