I didn't know the transit crew had a pipes and drums band! They were terrific!!
This float represents the pyramids of Muttart Conservatory.
I had to crop a few photos to take out the people who butted in front.
This little girl was born to dance and dance she did with every group that passed by.
If you are a friend on Facebook, you will have seen my rant over the rudeness of adults who stood in front of those seated on the curb and/or chairs (children included), so they could see or take photos through the entire parade!! Can you believe this? (more in the next few photos) We were there at least 1 1/2 hours in advance and they arrived late. Ahem....
The lady wearing black and white is not in the parade but look how close she stood to watch.
One of those seated did ask a few times for those in front to move or sit down. Some did begrudgingly. My husband threatens to take a water gun next year. (he wouldn't but it would feel good, right?) What would you do?
After the parade we stopped at Churchill Square, the festivities centre, and got a couple shots of the unique costumes.
I've wanted to go to this parade for years and now that I finally have done so I'm glad I/we did. I love the colourful costumes, the music and the culture shared here today. Does your city/town have something similar?
