Parade in America

The street was blocked off before the parade
began Saturday in Ontario, Oregon, USA.

Parade reaches downtown

Winter Wonderland Parade Queen and
Princesses ride in style.

Here comes the Grand Marshal!!!

Grand Marshal of the Winter Wonderland Parade
waves and tells parade-goers "Merry Christmas!"

All this work-- me taking photos, the man of the hour and his wife waving--made us hungry, so we went out for lunch. I ordered the Chicken Strip Basket and Peanut Buster Parfait at Dairy Queen. I forget what Dad and Mom had to eat. But I gave Mom half (well ok, less than half) of my ice cream treat, which was even more delicious than I remember it being the previous time I ate it.
