I promised my husband when we went to see the parade that I was there just to enjoy it, not to take pictures.
I guess I lied.
A couple of minutes in and I just couldn’t resist myself.
It was an excellent parade and I think several of my pictures came out quite well even though I have trouble taking pictures at night.
I don’t think that this year’s parade was as long as last year’s but then last year’s parade seemed extraordinarily long (approximately 30 minutes). There were fewer tumblers and, I think, fewer people on foot. The floats were still just as awesome, possibly even better than last year.
Snow fell from the rooftop over The Local Yocal Market and created an exciting feel of Christmas for the children on the floats and parade watchers alike.
A beautiful but very skittish horse was led between two lighted autos.
Troop 9323 had a beautiful “snow globe” themed float.
I’m a sucker for patriotic displays. Mix that with Christmas and we had some real winners.
The McKinney School of Rock float was a highlight of the parade. It has just opened on Louisiana Street in the strip center across from the First Baptist Church.
I can’t wait to hear more about The McKinney School of Rock.
And, of course, there was Santa…
Until next time,
Happy Shopping (& Merry Christmas)
