Everyone loves a Parade

Parades are big in Canada, and the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade is no exception. We had an early start from Mark and Sharilou's place just outside Kitchener and headed downtown to get a good spot to watch the parade go by. (I think Mark must have known that I would have doubly enjoyed this spot since it was right outside the local Apple Store)

The parade featured a lot of the local dignitaries and luminaries going past on floats and on the back of decorated utes, as well as local businesses, schoolkids and just regular folk taking part. There were several very good marching bands, some from the local area and some even coming up from the USA to take part in the parade. The theme was of course very German, since the area has a large German population and it is also Oktoberfest at the moment.

The whole parade lasted a good couple of hours, and was a lot of fun to watch. I think Donna particularly liked the march-by of the Giant Tiger float.
