Dakota,like many in Friday's pet parade, wears a coslume while walking down San Antonio Street m New Braunfels, "We top It off f)y going to the fair. We're all g('ing to th<> fair tonight." f)own the bloc k, Misty M.irtine? of Bulverde and h('r big group — 12 adults and kids in thrcv vehick*s — had arriv(‘fl at S;4'“) Friday morning to (laim some prime real t'state in the f)arking lot of St, Paul I uther-an ( hurch. "Fhat's wh\ we g(*t u[) so t*.»rly — to get that great spot. It's our 12th year we've done it.

Alx)uf an hour Ix^fore the parade^ liegan. Watts was busy piloting a got cart loaded down with assistants, one holding a box of trophies tor the winning parade (‘ntries, up and down the blocks where entries in Friday's larade were g(‘tting lined up and ready to go. It was something like getting an army rcMcly to go into battle, she said. She' (Stimated that "roughly 200 to 2SO" entries were in the parade. "That's alx)ut what it is every yc'ar." Nicole said it's hard to say the exact number of entries without [physically counting them because few of them ac tually send in an official entry' torm. "Thc>y just kinda show up," she said. Nonetheless, Nicole assigns them fo a spot along the "staging blocks and makc's sure tr area ley c ome out onto the parade route in a certain order. She planned for about three weeks to make sure that i>verything would go smoothly. Not everything did. For instance, Nicole said she painted numbers marking spots on Willow and Sycamore where the entries were to line up, but Thursday's rain washed away some of the numbers. Then some of the entries were longer than estimatc»d and tcxik up spots assigned to the next entry. But Nicole seamed to Ix? coping well with handling all the k)gis-tics. "It's just a front," she said. "You shoulci have lx‘c>n a fly on this cart about 30 minutes ago." I’olice officers working the parade said the crowd was well )ehavt‘d. "The weather's good. They get cranky when it gets hot," saici one officer. Sgt. Christopher Peltier said the thermometi*r in his Tahoe* was rc‘g-istering an outside temp of 71 degrees. People trying to park in the wrong sfX)t is typically the biggest [Problem, he said. "We rarely have any [)rol)lems out here as far as crowds," Peltier said. "About the worst thing we usually have out here are missing kiddoes." But there* had be'en no incidents of note. Fiow many parade-goers were in the crowd? Peltier said the [Parade is always cpne of the biggest events in New Braunfels. "It'd be> safe to say thousands," Peltier said. "Let's just say half the city (pf Ne*w Braunfels," ancpthc'r officer said.
