Getting Ready for the Parade

At the end of the Fiesta weekend there is a parade called the "The Desfile de la Fiesta or the Historical / Hysterical Parade. This is a shot of the beginnings of people lining up for the parade. Frankly I found it quite boring and not sometthing I see myself attending again. I think the politicians and Right to Life groups turned me off.

We have a christmas parade that has a lot of commercial floats that seem like commercials as well as politicians. Some of it is pretty good though. It is a bit long to watch.

I'm surprised that they would be at such a parade? I do love the perspective of this shot though.

Love its name 'historical/histerical'. Looking warm too.

Hm, I think they would've turned me off too. But a nice anticipatory feel in this pre-parade photo.

Good reason to stay away next time!

no doubt, politics worms its way into any event it can.

I agree but sometimes they throw candy to us kiddies.

Too bad the parade has been turned into a political action event.

I know just what you mean. I used to enjoy our parades until they became political and advertising for local retailers.

I thought the 'hysterical' part of the title would have made it a bit more fun Randy!

At least they saved the worst for last!

Waiting is never funny, but I guess it probably does worth it...

Well, some parades really are boring, I agree. ;)

I hope you found a spot in the shade. Politicians at a parade? Really?

That reminds me of the parades I went to as a young girl.
