Highlights included floats sponsored by LEGO, Mattel, Coke and Lowe's. The parade lasted about 1 hour & 30 minutes. We cheered loudly for the only band from the U.S. (Attica High School in New York) and for the man of the hour -- Santa Claus himself.
I took about a zillion photos . . . but these are some of my favorites.
|We were a little confused why Mario of Mario-Kart fame could not drive himself during the parade!|
|We thought the Lowe's float was kind of cute and very appropriate for a home improvement warehouse!|
|Tyler helped out by helping serving the hot chocolate.|
|Scott is convinced that with all the money we have spent on LEGOS during the past 10 years, |
we probably paid for this float.
|Me with my friend Kristin.|
|Yummm! The Chocolate Turtles float. Wish they were giving out samples!|
|A gingerbread house decorated with doughnuts? Has to be the Tim Horton's float!|
|Glad to see the Ukrainian youth band made the roster.|
|Santa Claus was on the very last float! The Consulate kids were thrilled to see him.|
