Thompson Baptist's Youth Group, dressed up in the colorful costumes of the CastleKids rode merrily down Thompson's Jackson Avenue in a flag bedecked wagon pulled by Matt Piercy on his bright red FarmAll tractor. The kids and float went on to win The Best Youth Group Float trophy !
Folks along the parade route were suddenly refreshed as the CastleKids sprayed water from water guns mounted on the sides of the float. It was a warm day and the spray did bring some relief from the heat.
Running along behind the float was a modern day Court Jester whose identity remains a secret, especially since his wife told him not to say a word, because the minute he opened his mouth all would know it was Earl Cottrell !
Later in the day the CastleKids Puppeteers put on a puppet show to entertain the throngs who were milling about on the fire hall grounds. The little skit was enjoyed by one and all.
"CastleKids Choosing to Serve the King" is this year's VBS theme at Thompson Baptist. The five day program will be held from July 26 to July 30, nine till noon with kids ages 4-12 all welcome.
