These are my best few dozen from the first two hours of today's Grand Kadooment street parade, the climax of the 2011 Crop Over Festival. I ventured out early hoping to get some good shots before the threatening rain made its approach! The rain started pouring at about 10:30 a.m. and put an end to my expedition. I trekked back home, against the flow of the march, in pouring rain. I hope you'll enjoy them!
