2015 Annual Christmas Parade

Nothing like welcoming the Christmas Season in with a big parade, featuring a bunch of fireworks, some sounding like military munitions exploding, loud music from gigantic sound systems on almost every float, lots of horns and sirens. In short, a whole lotta fun!

Here's a selection of the sixty-some photos I took of the Christmas Parade from the balcony over Z-Restaurant last evening. Perfect weather and a big crowd!

Terrific floats! Looks like loads of fun, especially if you are wearing ear plugs. ;-)

Hi Wilma,

The parade was a lot of fun. Prior to the parade, we all had dinner at Z's, with a limited menu as Mike, the chef was taking part in the parade. His wife, Mimi, whipped up some great fried chicken for us.

Earplugs would definitely have halped. A lot of nicse all evening. Still a real hoot.

Hope you have a good Christmas.

Cheers,
Dave
