I understand. My children and I have participated in past years, however, could not this year , which is why I asked, because it is such a fun event. Can't be everywhere. Hope you had a lovely weekend with your daughter. Is there an easy way for people to share their own photos of an event when you post articles such as this?

It was a great weekend, thanks Wendy. Before Patch had the redesign last summer, it used to be really easy for people to upload photos to existing articles and we even had a photo gallery feature so I could post an article that featured photos prominently and had a big button on top for readers to click and upload just like that. Unfortunately, that went away. People can post photos to the boards here (the small little posts to the right) or upload photos to blog posts. A lot of times, people send me photos to my email address mark.schieldrop@patch.com or I find them posted to our Patch Facebook pages. The new Patch platform which is coming later this year will drastically improve how people can contribute to the site, especially when it comes to photos and events. I'll see if I can track down individual photos of the entries. You are correct — it would make a great photo gallery. Thanks again.
