Parade Recap

I know, the weekend was ages ago, but we only have two parades a year around here (Homecoming being the other) so I feel obliged to give a quick picture recap of Saturday's St. Patrick's Day Parade. For your convenience, I've divided the photos into two categories: things I expected to see in a St. Patrick's Day parade, and things that struck me as a little more unusual.

For instance, I was not surprised to see:

The Guinness Beer Truck


The Fort Collins Pipe Band


Beautiful Draft Horses


But I can't say the same for:

Scooby-Doo


Zombie Drummer Guy


Star Wars Stormtroopers


But at a parade, it's all good, and everyone had fun. Well, except maybe for this guy:

Here in Tenerife we were surprised to see two Spaniards in our village bar wearing the green - shirts, fedoras, the lot. Any excuse for a party!

Great photos! I think I would have been too surprised (or laughing too hard) to get a good picture of the zombie drummer guy.
