Mother Goose

I thought I would show you some of the floats from the Santa Claus Parade which took place a few weeks ago. I go down to the set-up area near Christie Pits Park early in the morning before the parade to get up close to the floats but it means that all the kiddies who would be riding on the floats aren't there yet so you will see empty stools like in this pic. This is Mother Goose and she has been the traditional leader of the parade since 1917 although the first parade was in 1913!

I've seen her in the parade many times. A veteran parade leader for sure.

Don't worry, Mother Goose has everything under control and will show you the way, just get in line and follow. :)

Momentarily there are a lot of Canadian goose in Holland but not as big as this one. An extraordinary example I must say.
