The sound of a klaxon horn signalled the arrival of a Model A Ford which had come to take us to our annual appearance in the Santa Parade. We sped along Moorhouse Avenue and Blenheim Road (no seat belts) towards the Riccarton gathering place. Asian passengers in a passing tourist bus had their ipods out taking our photo. While we waited for the parade to start I walked along and took pictures of some of the floats.
Today’s parade was the 65th, the weather was fine and sunny, and I suspect there’ll be some people wishing this evening that they’d covered up from the sun.
“It’s fun to be in the parade
a bright colourful cavalcade.”
