Long time lurker, first time poster, etc.

Sadly, I'm actually also a lurker at Scarby. I go rather frequently, but still haven't put any garb together. This Memorial Day weekend, I've actually managed to convince my dad to come with the two kiddos and me to Scarby (which, if you know my dad is no small feat). I have two questions for you fine folk:

Is the special Memorial Day parade (you know, where they invite veterans to march in the Parade and such) only on Memorial Day Monday, or do they have the Memorial Parade each day of closing weekend? I can't recall.

Knowing my dad, we will probably only be there for a few hours, and I want to make sure that we hit shows that will really impress him. In your opinion, what shows are can't miss and might draw him back in for next year?

ETA: I'm a dunce. Kiddos are two, and not even one. So, age appopriateness doesn't matter much at this point of the game. Heck, the big one saw Iris and Rose at both Scarby and TRF before she was one. And she was once part of Christophe the Insulter's incentive for a "horrible, terrible, nasty insult" toward the end of his show.

The special parade is only on Monday, and don't forget that the parade has changed routes this year. It now starts near the chess board.

I'm not a kid-based person, so I don't know what sort of shows both your dad and two kiddos might like. Dr. Kaboom, maybe? He's a lot of fun, and you wouldn't have to spend the whole show explaining things (to the kids or dad, hehe). Good luck, and hope you're able to win over dad!

I second Doktor Kaboom. I liked Hey Nunnie Nunnie too, and Wine and Alchemy is a great musical act. I was disappointed with DonJuan and Miguel this year, but there are so many good acts you won't catch them all, and will probably be happy with any you do catch.

I like Daniel Duke of Danger, as he belittles his own life for his fans, and looks very much like Wallace "INCONCEIVABLE!!!" Shawn

Also Zilch the Tory-Steller, who's act hasn't changed in four years, I think, but is still fun.
