Nyan Cat Parade
Today was the annual Nyan Cat Parade in Taddletown. Crowds gathered outside the Town Hall and as the clock struck twelve, Nyan Cat himself came bouncing down the street with his famous rainbow flag following after him and declared the start of the parade. He lead the parade along its traditional route from the Town Hall to the Park, going via Royal Avenue (where King Taddle was watching) and round The Square. This year he lead it round the square three times, because Nyan Cat is enthusiastic sometimes.
The parade consisted of a diverse mixture of Taddletowners. Cats, dogs, bunnies, hedgehogs, and all the other animals who live here were represented. For the first time this year there was even a young polar bear. The crowd that lined the streets was equally diverse, and everyone cheered and celebrated.
In the Park after the parade there were fun and games for all, including a bouncy castle (which was particularly enjoyed by the young polar bear) and the day was concluded with a concert, lead by the Taddletown Brass Band. After that, a few of the revellers went to Tinsel Box while everyone else went home for a well-deserved rest.
This reporter is not ashamed to say that he ate quite a few pop tarts and still has a bit of rainbow face paint on his cheeks.
