Rock On!

I loved all the great colours and happy sea creatures in this float from the Santa Claus Parade. When the parade actually got going the tentacles of the octopus went up and down as he played on those drums. And check out that guitar player! The parade relies on corporate sponsors (no public money) and that is the reason that each float has such a prominent company sign on it. Without these companies there might be no parade!

The best part is your weather! And I think it's a given that without sponsorship there isn't a parade.

Now, there's some color!

That is a colorful one, RedPat.

Very colourful!

I missed our local parade this year... just saw the aftermath of it as I was coming downtown last weekend.

Fantastic colors. I've not seen a shark playing guitar before. Nor have I seen an octopus playing drums. Rock and roll and the deep blue sea!

Kudos to the corporations although I'm sure they'll write off the costs as necessary advertising, etc. :-)

It's my favourite so far! :)

Would love to have seen the octopus in action!

Wow, it looks like great weather for your parade. The corporate signs are fine -- the famous Rose Bowl Parade in CA has sponsors signs on the floats as well. No big deal. This float is beautiful and bright and I bet kids of all ages loved that octupos.
