Let's All Go To the Parade!!


Once again we attended the annual Lakeland Christmas parade. The only one not attending this year was Leslie. Darn that job of hers!!! She just was not able to figure out how to skip work. And that was a shame because the parade was excellent this year. Just the right mix of cold air and wind to make it nice but not freezing. Along with some eye catching and fun floats. Take a look below.












This is the start of the parade with the motorcycle cops going in circles with their light and sirens blaring. I like how I captured the moment.












Look!!!!! It's Mickey and Minnie!! Gotta love those mice.












The Golden Arches. I'm Lovin It!!












Let's Get Naughty!!! Who remembers those days???












I do not remember what this represents but I liked how the people were inside the snowglobe. Kinda unique ...huh??












Ohhhhh Look....Can it be???!! Plato the Publixsaurus!! This is the first time my family and I can rememebr Publix being in the parade. Now why you ask is this such a big deal. Ummmm hello....Lakeland is their hometown!!! This is a long time coming....should've been much sooner than later. I hope they keep up the tradition.













May the Force be with you












This got my kids going. It reminded them that it is almost Monster Truck time. Oh yea baby!













This one is for you Les! Missed you. (oh and by the way...another first timer in the parade).












And always last but never least.........."Who has reindeer pull his sleigh"??













Must be Santa......Must be Santa....Must be Santa.....Santa Claus!!! (it's a song people.....geesh!!)

Fun parade! I miss Publix we don't have any up here. How cool that you got to see Mickey and Minnie without paying an arm and a leg!
