Winter Festival and Tally TKD

Tallahassee, FL

This evening members of Tallahassee Taekwondo (www.tallytkd.com) participated in the Tallahassee Winter Festival. They were given the slot number 25 and all members walked the one mile long parade route from Virginia Street to Gaines Street. They distributed candy-canes people and demonstrated some taekwondo skills.

The weather was good in mid 50s and even though it was expected to go to mid 40s with no wind it was perfect climate for walking.
