Rose Parade day

Filed under: — stan @ 10:51 pm

Today was Rose Parade day in Pasadena. In practical terms, that means we’re under virtual house arrest here. It’s difficult to get anywhere, so we just plan on staying home. We got to see a lot of the horse teams from the parade, since they park their trailers in our neighborhood to pack the horses up at the end of the parade. It’s always strange to see horses walking down our little suburban street.

Wells Fargo had a pair of old-style stagecoaches in the parade, and we went to see them. They gave Lucinda a little plush stuffed Wells Fargo Rose Parade horse.

The group with the fairy wings made my day. The girls were cute in their costumes, and the horses were wearing glitter. What’s not to like there?

Their were also groups of high school kids walking around with trash cans, shovels, and brooms to clean up. I hope they’re getting extra credit for doing that.

    Stan, we can get around fairly well if we don’t have to touch Colorado Bl. 24hrs before parade start.
    Happy 2010 to y’all!

    We’re at the end of the route, so when the parade is over, then we have thousands of people coming to see the floats for the rest of the day and two days after. So it makes for a nightmare to try and go anywhere by car. On foot or by bike is OK.
