We arrived just in time to watch the Horse of a Different Color Parade. Doll Baby waved to Dorothy, Tin Man, Lion, Scarecrow, Glinda, Flying Monkeys (on bikes), and more as they passed by.
Then we perused the vendor booths and purchased a Dorothy Dress made by Ruth Kirsch for Doll Baby.
We ended our visit in the kid zone at Thomas Centennial Park. There you could get your hair braided just like Dorothy for free, watch a look-a-like contest, listen to live music, and catch a puppet show by Stevens Puppets.
Bob Walls from Stevens Puppets and his marionettes were definitely the highlight for us. The show had everyone, young and old, captivated!
