Santa Claus Parade - 2

A few more pictures from our small town Santa Claus Parade which graced Main Street last Saturday.

I was very impressed with this athletic gentleman riding his penny farthing bicycle.

And here's a completely different type of transportation. I can just imagine this little pony curled up at the end of my bed. So sweet with Christmas decorations on his toes.

The local Junior 'A' Spirit ice hockey team acknowledges their fans...

... closely followed by a Viking warship on its way to do a spot of looting and pillaging no doubt.......

.......... and the crazy Shriners with their musical choo-choo-train.
For more pics of the Santa Claus Parade see previous post.

The penny farthing bicycle looks almost like riding a large unicycle.

Looks like you live in a charming town. The old-fashioned parade seems reminiscent of another time.

The weather was perhaps not the nicest during the parade, but who cares when you have fun!

ah, the vikings! we can't leave them out. read yesterday that DNA shows iceland was populated by norwegian men and celtic women--the latter gathered for wives when the vikings pillaged the orkney islands. of course, canada is not iceland, but it's always fun to find a window into history, even in a local xmas parade.

What a great wintertime/Santa parade. I am in charge of dinner this year again.....just the 2 of us but enough food to feed an army.

Great shots, Shammie. Gotta love that little pony with its jingly tootsies.

the penny-farthing looks very precarious!
