I saw dancers, baton twirlers, karatekas (I just looked up that word and found that it means people who practice karate), farmers, horseback riders, Spiderman, cowboys, villains, a damsel in distress, rock stars, political office seekers, “Bernie Sanders,” and the “Gentle Trump.”

Fun post. Love all the pictures. Made me feel like I had the experience of the parade first hand.
What a fun time that looks like! You have some awesome photos. Good seeing you again in the challenge.
Thanks for all of the pictures. I love a parade. It can be a lot of work after the parade to select the best photos for the blog. "You did good girl."
I chose a July 1 Canada Day parade for the topic of my first post in this challenge.
