  • Yes, I was in a Japanese samurai parade at a major temple in Japan. I was a slave to the beautiful princess, so I had to walk behind her carrying a giant umbrella to shield her sensitive porcelain skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. We walked around the city for two days, and I was really knackered!! The first day, I had a hangover from the night before and my head was pounding. She was the highlight of the parade and was constantly stopping to pose for photos, so naturally I had to stop too, holding this thing. By the end of the parade I felt like braining her with it! LOL
  • Yeah...with my doggie-girl Hannah. We were in the Hometown Christmas Parade. There are no motorized vehicles in this parade...only horses. A lot of draft horses pulling wagons, or sleighs if there's enough snow! It was started by one man, as a way to "give back" to his community here in eastern PA. His son carries it on, as Santa...they hand out oranges to the kids and old folks to gather...the whole town turns out...it was a lot of fun.. Even walking about 3 miles in the cold, with Hannah decked out in jingle bells, prancing because I'm sure she didn't care for the leg bells on her hocks!

  • yes. with the sons of V.F.W..
  • I almost had the chance to be in one when I was in a drill team called "The Fresh Cadettes" in Seattle, WA. The reason why I was not able to participate was because I got in trouble from the director for talking when I was'nt suppose to, and it got passed onto my dad, and he took me out of drill for awhile until I could get my act together. My sister got to participate.

My father was foundation president of the Parramatta Memorial Swimming club near Sydney, so he organised a utility, which we decorated, and all sat on the back in our swimmers and tracksuits, and gave out information on the club to people in the Parramatta Foundation Day Parades. This was in the early 60s. I have the photos, and am still proud of being there, and of my dad, for founding the club.
  • I was on a float dressed as a roman soldier,It was for a theater festival celebration in my city.
  • Considering how many parades we have in Louisiana it's a wonder I haven't been in more. I was in a Christmas parade when I was in 4th grade. I was a majorette. It was 30 degrees and misty. My baton was frozen in may hand. All I had to wear was my majorette outfit, no coat. It was my first and last. Nothing short of a gun to my head will make me be in another parade.
