Snapshots from a parade

This weekend I was meant to be at home in my little town, driving an old car in our annual parade. Instead, I am in Edmonton where there just happened to be a parade on too. Unlike our parade, which runs for about 20 minutes, the Edmonton version seemed to go on for ever.

The parade launches K-Days, the 10-day exhibition, which has been running every year since 1879. The first parade took place in 1903. I’m sure it looked completely different to this year’s (of which we only had the stamina for about two-thirds.)
