    Not going to be there this year, but already planning for next year. Where would a good viewing spot be in your opinion, and what time would we want to be there? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Pat

    pat
    i have never seen the GRAND PARADE.... the closest i got was a number of years ago, i got caught up in the traffic trying to get to the airport

    if i were there and wanted to be in a good spot, i think that i would want to be near the Parliament bldg. Reason.....i bet there'd be plenty of restrooms (port o pottys) available as well as good viewing.

    I have no idea how far in advance folks scope out their spots...........weeks i think.
