The Cherry Blossom Parade

On the final day of The Cherry Blossom Festival, they have a parade!
Did someone say parade, oohhhhh that's my favorite.
The hubs, not so much, but he was so happy to arrange for a special car,
to take us right to the area and pick us up afterward,
only a few blocks away.
 
Good thing we had our own "chariot", the parade area was crowded...
and when I say crowded,
you have never seen a crowd like this.
 
But....I loved it.
Two hours of amazing colors, music, funny and happy peeps.
 
Did I take a lot of pictures,
you bet I did.
Sit back, relax and enjoy...it was such a happy parade.






























The End!!
Wasn't that a beautiful parade??

  3. It was an EGGseptionally beautiful parade!!(wink, wink!) On what looks like a perfect day!! I especially loved the covered wagon! And I think seeing people marching in unison is fascinating...Thanks so much for sharing all this - my dislike for crowds would win out over my love for parades...so I'm glad I have you!
