Moment in Time about Orange Day Parade, by Ollie E.
Waiting, wind blowing, all I see is people dressed in orange. All waiting in a line for the one and only Orange Day Parade. Gabrielle looks like she has good news, she turns and looks at us and tells us "we have ordered a DOUBLE DECKER BUS!!" Everyone cheers and screams!!!
We had to wait for it though and everyone got a little bit down but then.... we heard the roar of the bus. Everyone started going through the gate and marching like soldiers. Everyone was practicing the chant for ORANGE DAY PARADE!
When we got on the bus everyone was rushing up the stairs to get to the top. The bus started moving slowly and we knew it was gonna be a good day.
We finally made it to our destination, outside the Beehive. We joined the back of the parade and all there was, was screams and shouts. 2, 4, 6, 8 who do we appreciate?! Not the King, not the Queen but the Worser Bay Patrol Team!! After that we made it to the Micheal Fowler Centre and everyone was crowded at the doors. We found a lot of stairs and we went up them and found some seats. Then one little group got lost (!!!!), lucky Anna was with them. They finally made it up to the top floor where we were supposed to be.
Jessie and Ridley appeared from backstage and performed a song. Everyone was cheering, Go, Go, Go!!! The crowds were swaying to the beautiful tunes.
Next up the awards! They announced many awards but when they said the Parade Presence award, we knew we were in with a shot! And just like that Worser Bay School came out with an award! AMAZING!!!! We cheered and cheered.
What an amazing end to Orange Day Parade!
