Costumes at the Santa Parade

The costumes at the Santa Parade are fun, unique and colourful. As my stepson noted, they put many Halloween costumes to shame. It was difficult for me to choose my favourite. I loved these ones for the fun they portray:

I can imagine walking in them would be a little difficult though.

I am certain that these participants were nice and warm in their costume on this chilly day:

My daughter loved the rabbits holding their carrots 🙂

I found the dinosaurs to be cute.

I was wondering why these people were holding fire hydrants. I did not work out the significance.

The people dressed as bears looked warm as well – all of them were smiling at the crowds.

Such a wide skirt! This woman was working hard to move her dress along.

I loved the Tim Hortons coffee cup 🙂

What was great is that the cup danced along wowing the crowd. The audience loved it!

As did beautiful flowers:

I am sure all the little girls loved this costume:

When we saw the Christmas trees, we knew that Santa was near.

The costumes were a delight to see and are certainly an integral part of the parade.

Do you enjoy the costumes of a parade?

  1. fun, fun, fun – and oh my – the tim Horton’s cup – now that felt like Canada – mmmmm – and even though we have them in the States now, I will always remember getting Tim Horton’s coffee on trips to Canada in the 80’s – crossing from Buffalo into Niagara Falls area – and it was the thing to get.
    I also like the monkeys and the large skirt – what a nice parade 🙂

      1. oh I loo forward to it. And one of my aunts living in Buffalo – well she always lets people stay at her house and she is so hospitable – and she never wants any gifts – but she will take a bag of Tim Horton’s coffee – it makes her day! and wow to the 50th – 🙂

  2. They really went all the way with this parade. Fabulous costumes, and probably appreciated by those wearing them over layers, I imagine. It looks as though everyone was having a blast, although I tend to focus on watching the small children’s reactions to such events, more so than the event itself in many cases.

    1. From where I was standing I could not see many children – they are all in the front enjoying every moment. I remember, though, often looking at my own children’s reactions when they were younger.

      1. We went to a Japanese Restaurant where the chef does all of that fancy stuff when he’s cooking over open flames at the table. There was a little boy celebrating his 2nd birthday. I couldn’t take my eyes off the kid—he was precious in his reactions to the chef. I’m sure the kids attending your parade were a hoot to watch—for those who could see their faces. Anyway, thanks for sharing Colline.. it was a fun stroll through your photos this a.m. 🙂

  3. Such fun and beautiful costumes Colline! I can see you had so much fun looking at these at the parade. I don’t like crowds, so you won’t find me there. Thanks for sharing these. Love it. 😀 ♥
