Baton Twirling in the MLK Parade
by Mallary Tenore Tarpley
It’s up there somewhere …
Twirling behind fire engines … worst place to twirl in a parade!

Have to get ’em started at a young age.
I told you in my last post that I would show you some footage of me twirling in St. Petersburg’s Martin Luther King Jr. parade. Well, you can watch me try to relive my glory days as a competitive twirler in this video, which my editor at Poynter made. Twirling the baton is like riding a bicycle. You (and the baton) might get a little rusty, but you never forget how to twirl.
What do you think? You ready for me to give you some twirling lessons?
