All the color, noise, excitement....all the glitz and glam is such fun! But mostly I love a parade for the sense of community it draws together....good people coming together for a celebration.
I used to participate in parades often. I have been in them as a Scout, as a cheerleader, dressed in all green for a certain afore mentioned Irish Fest Parade a time or two, as an officer touting our local women's club.......but the best times in a parade for me was when marching along in formation playing John P. Sousa music on my piccolo. Great fun, that.

(In fact, I still
play have my piccolos, as you can see!)
Today I am simply enjoying the "parade" from the sidelines - supporting our wonderful community of participants....trying to get up close for a really good look, and root on the Big Guns - and to especially support the smaller ones......to admire all those who have painstakingly prepared for the parade with hard work, determination, talent, charm and a strong sense of community......to make the parade a thing of enjoyment for all......to make our world much more colorful, fun and festive place to be.
Mr.Bunny Plaid and I salute you!
