Everyone Loves A Parade! The Question is: Which Parade is Your Favorite?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Doesn’t everyone love a parade?! Tons of smiling faces, loud bands, people dancing, large floats and lots of bad food can be bought from vendors. There are a number of great parades.

Here is a quick list in no particular order:

  • Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (New York, New York)
  • The Rose Parade (Pasadena, California)
  • The Philadelphia Mummer’s Parade (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
  • Chinese New Year Parade (San Francisco, California)
  • Fourth of July Midnight Parade (Gatlinburg, Tennessee)
  • St. Patrick’s Day Parade (Boston, Massachusetts)
  • Mardi Gras (New Orleans, Louisiana)
  • Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade (Fort Lauderdale, Florida)
  • The Saint Paul Winter Carnival (St. Paul, Minnesota)
  • Inaugural Parade (Washington D.C.)

    Here are my questions:

    • Do you like parades?
    • Which one is your favorite?
    • Do you have a favorite outside of the USA?

      I look forward to reading your comments!
