|Not as impressive as Delray's 100-foot tree,|
but my awful measuring skills would
estimate this one is about 60-feet tall
As for the parade, it was pretty much what you can expect from a small city. However, only in South Florida can you see a holiday parade with a beautiful sunset in the background, while enjoying 70° temperatures.
We saw lots of school marching bands perform, but Frank felt none of them were as good as the band in Drumline. The band from Roosevelt Middle came pretty close.
My favorite float was from Jazzercise, and was entitled “My Christmas Wish List 1985.
|Yep, that's a Smurf in front and Strawberry Shortcake to your left.|
And a Rubik's Cube! Pretty sure I got all of those things on
Christmas morning in 1985!
There were also pirates representing.
|Nothing screams "Merry Christmas" more than someone |
making you walk the plank!
Next up, the Boynton and Delray Beach Boat Parade! It’s this Friday at 6:30pm, and if you need a place to watch it, you can meet me on my dock!
