Elf And Friend

I am not really up on the latest kid's books but there seems to be a whole series revolving around an elf and a companion with a cuddly toy included with the book. The St Bernard is the latest pet in the series and I'm sure this float was popular with the kids. You can see that there was still a rope stabilizing the dog during the float's journey from the assembly location to this marshaling area for the parade. It was later removed before the parade began.

This really is a very cute float. I love the dog. It makes me think of the St. Bernard that I grew up with. He was such a big sweetie.

Your parade photos show a contemporary slice of youth culture. Some of us geezers may miss some of the references unless we hang around children. Elf? Okay...

I thought the Elf on the Shelf was merely a decorative thing, not more than that.

Yes, they can get frisky those St Bernards; best keep them roped up. Have a lovely Christmas!

Nice to have so much cars showing themes from children books. I like that.

Parades are always fun!
It may be an unpopular opinion but I am SO glad Elf on the Shelf never became part of our house.
