Glen Eden Santa Parade!

These are some of the photos I took at the Santa Parade today.  Absolutely horrible wet, cold windy day:-(  But the Parade was fantastic!  I came home with cold, numb, blue fingers..and a smile on my face! (And lots of photos!)  After coming home and thawing out I totally forgot how cold I had been!  Even the trees (above) were decorated! 
And the dogs!  So cute and colourful! Hope they didn't have a "rrufff day!

This very bouncy lady had springs on her feet and was bouncing all over the place! 
One of the pipe bands.  I have Scottish blood in me so I love the bagpipes!  (Santa!  Please bring me some bagpipes fro Christmas!!)
It was good to see my local Fire Brigade all dressed up for the ocassion!
I wish I was this tall... 
"Minnie Mouse" was there but I didn't see "Mickey Mouse" anywhere?!  I once proposed to "Mickey Mouse" when I was at Disneyland.  The person taking the photos was quick to say he couldn't marry me because "Minnie Mouse" would be very upset!!  My life could have been a "carnival"!

I'm not really into cars, but this one caught my eye for sure! 
...And this one too! 
And this one!
These kids were happy in spite of the wind and rain and were happy to have their photo taken! 
And this little boy was just gorjuss!  Such a happy face! 
Another one of the many bands at the Parade. 

"Morris Dancers" in all their finery!  Now I know what to do with all my scraps of material...Just add bells!

I loved this colourful Unicorn!  He came over and rubbed noses with me!  Shame I couldn't take a photo of that! 
The boy in the top photo was giggling so much when the Unicorn stopped to say hello to him!

OMG!  This guy had such an awesome expression on his face, I just had to take some shots of him! 

And this little girl was so cute!   I love purple and red together! 

Another Pipe band, and such a talented group! Love it!  (Santa!  Don't forget my bagpipes, please!)
Not sure who these guys were, Vikings maybe?  But they were very colourful! 

Every so often they stopped and "saluted" the crowd, on both sides of the Parade.  The crowd certainly loved them!  (Me too!) 
Love the face painting on this happy lady!  
And we all know who this bloke is!  He was probably the warmest, driest person at the Parade, in his red suit!  (Remember my bagpipes, Santa!) 
It was good to see the St. John Ambulance guys there, and all dressed up too! 
 Ok, that's all for today, hope you enjoyed your visit!  {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)

Oh what a fun parade despite the weather. I think those men are gladiators nor Vikings. I had a few uncles who played bagpipes, remember them well in my childhood. All great pics you are a talented photog! xx
