Sunday Stealing: I Love A Parade

1. Do you like parades? I like parades but I don't go out of my way to go to attend a parade.

2. Rate the following parade attractions in order of affection: I rearranged the order to show how I rank/rate them.

                      1. marching bands
                      2. antique cars/tractors
                      3. fire trucks
                      4. floats 
                      5. horses; 
                      6. anything that gives away candy
                      7. politicians ride in cars

3. Have you ever been in a parade? Yes, a few times when I was a teenager.

4. Do you bring lawn chairs to parades? Sometimes. Depends on where the parade is.

5. Does it bother you to have to park a long way from the parade, and then walk back to the car afterwards? I do not like to park a long way from anything.  So yes, parking a long way from a parade then walking back to the car, bothers me.

6. Do you wave at people you know? Yes.

7. At people you don't know? Yes.

8. Do you take pets -dogs particularly - to parades? My dog only sees parades that happen in the town we live in. We can see the parade from our house so I let Shelby sit on the porch and watch with me.  If she gets scared (she often does) then I can let her back in the house.

9 Have you ever been to a big parade in person (Rose Bowl, Macy's, etc)? I have been to one Superbowl parade and a few World Series parades.

10. Do you attend more warm weather or cold weather parades? Warm weather parades mostly.


  1. I put politicians at the end of the list, too. I can't think of any I'd care to see that might show up in a parade.
    I'm jealous that you live in a house you can watch the parades from. I've always thought that would be the coolest thing.
    Have a safe and happy 4th!

  2. I could see the local parades from my porch... but I generally don't bother.

  3. I won't leave my dog when there are going to be a lot of big BOOMS going on, and won't take him either. So, Parades are pretty much passé.
    We will still be mobilized though.
    Now, isn't THAT a grand thing that's happened!! Rah!
