Yesterday was our "Winter Wonderland Parade" here in the park. It's always fun to see what ideas the crazy people here come up with and how they decorate themselves, their golf carts, or bicycles. They didn't disappoint this year.
Every one of our parades begins with a local boy scout troop walking with both American and Canadian flags. (The park is made up of about 50% with visitors from Canada for the winter.)
This was a new addition this year:
I especially like the fake "snow" coming off the back of the boat!
The line dancers from our park. That's one of my friends, Thelma, in the center, giving us her special hand wave!
Looks like Santa's reindeer don't know if they're coming or going!
Jim was in this group of kazoo players. What a crazy group! They actually practiced 4 or 5 times! They played Jingle Bells! That's Jim in the center, back, with his long sleeved red shirt on and black suspenders. You'd NEVER see him in red - except for this!
Here they are making their way around the corner. I pointed Jim out for you.
This one is, "Grandma got run over by a reindeer!" Funny! But by the size of that reindeer, I hardly think it would have even left a mark!
This is the Fiesta Kitchen Band - most play kitchen instruments, although it looks like a lot of them are playing kazoos! Except for the "squeeze-box" man!
Another new addition this year - the pet parade!
How cute is this? Aww.....
Crazy I tell ya! She has her little doggy in the basket behind her.
Another nicely decorated golf cart.
Now, seriously, how could you not grin when you saw this?
The true meaning of "CHRISTmas""
I'm assuming this is supposed to be Joseph and ?
Okay, I admit, this was a LIT-TLE disturbing. I think she was supposed to be the pregnant Mary, but, seriously, a SMILEY face on the fat belly? Just weird.
But this makes up for it.....A cowgirl pooper-scooper dressed up in prison garb with the Christmas spirit!
A "smartly" decorated Smart Car. Groan!
That's a LOT of wrapping paper!
And of course, what's a Christmas parade without the big guy in the red suit?
I hope you enjoyed the parade. I sure did!
