It's time to Think Pink ... maybe

The Think Pink program held its official kickoff event leading up to this year's Cherry Blossom Festival yesterday, March 1. I stopped by about lunch time to get my car decked out in pink by Peggy Whyte and to see if this was an event worthy of attending again in the future. I have to say, I wasn't so impressed. Yes, there was a carwash going on if your car needed cleaning. Yes, there was a little bit of craft-selling and face-painting going on, but not a whole lot. And there was food, but again, not a lot of choice. There was also a band, which was good, but they went on break at lunch time so I sat in the car line for about an hour with very little entertainment except for the constant of moving my car forward and backward as directed by the crowd of volunteers. I was at least pleased to see there was a steady stream of cars lined up to get painted, so I know there are lots of other people out there ready for Cherry Blossom time just like me. While I am ready for the festival, I did think it was a tad bit early to get my car decorated. I know the car-painting event is generally held about the first weekend of March, but with this year's festival being pushed back into April, it just seems a little early to be riding around with pink flowers. I understand it was probably the best weekend for the event, with needing a rain-delay day, St. Patrick's and Easter all filling in the rest of the weekends before the festival, but still, come on, it's too early.
