A very touching memorial to the Joplin Tornado. The park also had a cool water park for kids. Nothing big but perfect for a hot afternoon.

Nice park with good amenities-basketball, etc. The tornado memorial was interesting. Could have used a good spring cleaning though.

Maxi dresses? (47 Replies)
Are these still a popular option for warmer days so far this Spring? Are shorter summer dresses also common? What's the trend lately, if any? I've looked at some recent Bill Cunningham reports but I can't really tell from them.

Dresses , both short and maxi, are definitely being worn. I admit I'm not sure what the designers are showing though.
