Seems like you didn't enjoy most of the "long, long" parade

When we have a parade I usually go to the staging area and walk around to take photos. The parade itself is kind of boring but the kids are motivated by the candy that gets thrown out.

Love this pic! I bet all the kids there were excited to see Sparky. I bet he was burning up in that suit.

Well, you found something that interested you despite the politics and proselytizing.

Like these costumed characters like Sparky. Wonder if it was a boy or girl playing the part?

Sharon said...

A different kind of "Sparky" than the one we see near ASU.

Did Smokey the Bear retire?

Nice shot! Although I can imagine how hot he was.

Good for Sparky for being a 'highlight'. I feel the same about parades today. All special interest groups and politics. Where are the floats and baton twirlers??? MB

I'm with you. Those same folks you mentioned in yesterday's post would turn me off, too. I like Sparky, though. And this is an "electric" image.

(You may recall that in some states the electric chair was called "Ol' Sparky"!)

Sparky must have been quite a treat for the children. Randy, I especially enjoyed the Coat of Arms post with the array of bright colors.

Bises,
