We Saw The Jolly Old Elf

Saturday was the Santa Claus Parade here in London. People starting staking out their spots along the parade route near where we were, around 5:00 in the evening. it started at six, and it was estimated to take 90 minutes for the full parade to pass any one given point. Something happened along the route though, so after 8 p.m., kids were still waiting for it to pass the point in the route where we were. But it did come eventually.

This was the starting. It was a perfectly clear evening, although it was starting to get a little cold.

Good thing we had baked goods and hot chocolate for sale at the Met.

The folks carrying the flags in front of the Native Float that won best theme float. The one with the grey pants and dark green jacket? That's my sister. Native veteran and still works with Cadets Canada.

Some of the Native dancers.

Lots to do today. Gotta run. :)


  1. That's a LONG time to sit & wait for the parade... we didn't go, too cold & late for my liking. We used to go when it was during the day, wish they'd do that again! :(

  2. Hey the parade looks pretty good - sorry I missed it this year!
