Parade Photos

Hey everyone, Happy Friday.  Today's post I am going to share some of the photos that I took at the parade on Wednesday as I am in the midst of clearing/cleaning/tidying my craft room and need to finish it!.
This 40 foot crocodile was complete with Peter Pan and Captain Hook!

As you can see - there was lots of colour despite the overcast skies. Thankfully the rain stayed away!
A very colourful balloon seller...
Lots of bands, marching and playing great tunes
This year's parade theme was "Ships to Shore" celebrating the city's maritime tradition.
Over 60,000 people turned out to watch the parade which was colourful, bright and lots of fun.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

St. Patrick's Day with no rain!!! A miracle!! Have just looked through your work over the past days, beautiful beautiful cards, Deirdre. I love the cute images on this week's PaperPlay and the total Innocence little girl, but my favourite is the butterflies on kraft - stunning!
