Dunedin started the festivities with music, lots of food vendors, and many people taking a break from their New Year's resolutions.
Then the crowd moved to the parade route, which as usual was lined several deep. After the parade there was more music for determined party-goers.
Everyone who showed up had a chance to add to their bead collection, and the Dunedin merchants added to their customer counts. Congrats to the Merchants Association and the Community Redevelopment Agency.
Anyone who felt like they didn't get enough of Dunedin can go back this Saturday and Sunday for the Arts & Crafts Festival. Masks optional.
