Instead, it's just a bunch of teenage blonde rodeo clones on horses, perky high school girls in gowns practicing their princess wave and creepy clown posses scaring the little children. Sure, some of the floats are pretty, but all I can think about is the wasted resources.
This year I took my camera and thought I'd take a few shots for the blog. The most interesting thing was when this car, carrying a 1959 Rose Princess, broke down and people had to jump in from the sidelines to push it out of the way. As you can see, they got it fixed and eventually pulled back into the parade route.
Other than the broken down car, the only other thing that really caught my eye was the cute female cops. I hope you enjoy looking at them. Maybe they'll be around next weekend for gay pride too.
