The Parade

I did end up going to the Halloween Parade down in the Village with some friends, and here are some of the promised pics I took. You’ll have to forgive me because they aren’t that great. My excuse is that the place was packed, so picture taking wasn’t easy. Also, I was a bit under dressed and a tad cold, so taking pics was really not on top of my priority list tonight. Anyhow, here they go.

There were a lot of floats with different themes

Some sophisticated, purchased costumes


Some simpler ones, and some home made

There was Elvis, Marilyn, even Jesus showed up!

I hadn’t been to this parade since 1997, and I’m telling you some thing just don’t change. It was the same craziness as it has ever been, and crowded as can be! I’m glad I went though. There were some very creative costumes, like french fries, scrabble tiles, a fortune cookie, and some lego people. My favorite was a flasher, but unfortunately I couldn’t get a picture of him.

After the parade we headed uptown again and ended up meeting some more friends at Habana Central for dinner and margaritas. All and all a great Halloween!

  1. A Halloween Parade! We’ve got nothing like that going on here! For some reason it reminded me of Key West at sunset….

  2. It looks like so much fun! I wanted to go real bad, but I knew that if I stayed up late (on a school night), I’d be wreck today…

  3. That is very cool! I like the ghostbusters. And the hula girls…

  4. Ah the village parade. NEver went, but always saw pics. Wow Ghostbusters. Can’t believe their still around. How about you? We didn’t get to see what you wore?

  5. That’s pretty cool. And those costumes- are those like Starship Troopers or whatever they’re called? (I am going to get kicked out of the dork club for not remembering that.)
