It's always kicked off by a parade on Thursday eve... this year's was extra fun because my derby girl was skating with the Junior League, and Ithaca's knitters had a float of their own! Want to see?
|The knitter's float had live Jazz and a trailer with sheep, cause that's how they roll!|
|Mandatory Ginormous Knitting Needles!|
|Knitting makes you happy, right?|
|Strangey, our fearless leader!|
|The Frida Kahlo Appreciation Society, where one can get a unibrow free of charge!|
|The GunShow, Ithaca's fledgingling Men's Roller Derby team (yes, they are "pulling" a volvo... this is Ithaca!)|
|Aw, my derby girl.....|
