Here are a few of the parade shots from yesterday. I forgot I had my camera so I didn't take a photo of the pipe bands.

These motorcycle officers were doing figure eights on the street. Since we were sitting on the curb, close to a turn in the parade route, we missed some of the fancy moves.

The scouts are always in the parade. This is actually a scouting drum corps.

I love these cars and it looks like these Shriners do too.

I guess they practice their moves - or else they do a lot of parades.

Roller derby girls called the Derby Debutantes.

I wonder how this is powered.

You could tell when this float gets close. They crank up the country music nice and loud.

Hard to play a banjo when you don't have all the strings.

They always seem to have fun.

This is what the float was towing. 
There wasn't much more - at least not exciting enough to take a photo of.
