Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Candidate for Brevard County Public Defender, Ken, and his crew of supporters let the good times roll at Cocoa Village’s Mardi Gras parade and celebration!  Saturday evening the Vote Rhoden Mobile (a great old Chevy pickup with almost 200,000 miles!) was jazzed up in gold, green and purple foil, balloons, and tulle – oh, and some great lights, too!   With 10 people riding in the built-by-Ken safety rail lined truck bed there were over 3,000 beads thrown out just from Ken’s group!   Thanks to Chris & Julia for driving and riding co-pilot, to Barbara & Cathy for joining the group, and to all the great volunteers who rode along.  As the only candidate participating in the parade this year the crew was well received all along the parade route.  Of course the honorable  Michael Blake,  Mayor of Cocoa was present in his best Mardi Gras finery and we were lucky to have him visit several times during staging and after the parade was over.  The photos don’t do this experience justice but they are all we have to share!  (A special Thank You to everyone who signed Ballot Petitions for us before the parade!)
