Pleasanton's soccer season 2010 opens with parade on Main Street

Hundreds parade in colorful costumes in traditional start to BUSC, RAGE games

Hundreds of youngsters paraded down Main Street in Pleasanton Saturday to mark the opening day of games among the Ballistic United Soccer Club 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.

Teams were encouraged to exhibit creativity, fun and to bring a little "Mardi Gras" in September to downtown Pleasanton, and most did with teams dressed as daffodils, tigers, snakes and in baseball and football jerseys. Freebies and other 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.
