just got back from the harrisonburg holiday parade.

the best parts:

1.) the Turner Ashby marching band bass guitarist – complete with un-uniformed amp-puller at his side.

2.) the rocktown rollers. and the fact that they were so refreshingly out of place amidst the SUVs and farm mobiles.

3.) whichever float was playing “sweet dreams are made of these” – evoking sweet memories of bigger, gayer parades.

4.) the weird, circa 1954, animal costumes dug out of some local government basement. the resident 3 year old vote went to “the pooping bear” whose strangely placed tail unfortunately led to potty thoughts. i love vintage tact.

Love it! The costumes on some floats were a little weird. A few of the gingerbread men really creeped me out! I think RMH Wellness Center played that song. It was a fun parade.
