Parade kicks off soccer season

Pleasanton's soccer season 2010 opened Saturday with teams in colorful costumes parading down Main Street in the traditional start to the Ballistic United Soccer Club games for boys and the Pleasanton RAGE for girls.

Team volunteers and coaches, many of them dressed to match the colorful costumes worn by their teams, walked alongside the groups as hundreds more watched from the sidewalks. The players exhibited creativity and fun, dressed as daffodils, tigers, snakes and in baseball and football jerseys, bringing Mardi Gras in September to downtown Pleasanton.

Goodies were provided along the route with the parade ending at Angela Street and Peters Avenue. Games in the 2010 soccer season got under way at 9 a.m. and lasted all day on scores of fields at Sports Park and middle and elementary school fields.
