You did well with your focusing - especially in those shots with streamers in front of people's faces.

On the keepers yes   There were a number where it was obviously wrong.  I have focus on the top fn button so I can get it right once, then wait for the expressions (or streamers).  Learned that from doing candids back in my 20D days.  Tried a bit of 9fps, but it was going to make wading through mountains of similar pictures a chore, so I dropped it to 4fps and generally got what I was seeing.  Looking at the files closely I could see blur, but it was almost certainly people "shake" rather than camera, and the ISO800 on day 2 helped with that.
