So what makes a great parade? Well, I can't mention every single aspect, but here are a few:
Older women with knock-out legs!These women were fabulous dancers, and though they aren't spring chickens, look at those killer legs! If I have legs like that in a decade or two (or three) I will be mighty happy about it.
Fire trucksWho doesn't appreciate a fire truck up close and personal? Just lay off the blasting horn next time, please...it was a teeny bit too loud for us!
Famous People!This is #41 for Tampa Bay. It says so right on the autographed football he threw to Ava. It also has his name on there which we can't read at all. We have no idea who he is! But he must be famous because he is autographing things, right?
The BandIt was a band...and a chorus! They started singing along with the song they were playing and we were grooving on the sidelines enjoying their music.
A CalliopeOh yeah, baby. A calliope. It just doesn't get much better than that. I'm pretty sure adding a calliope to a parade knocks it out of the park.
A Tank ThingieMan, where did they find this thing? How awesome! You know every little boy was probably going crazy and soaking up the military cool-ness slowly rolling past them.
I could go on and on...I took so many photos and saw lots of fun things. But I don't want to make all the other high schools in America too terribly sad. Not everyone can put together the most amazing parade ever!
