Floats at the Santa Parade

I have shared with you the marching bands, the costumes and the looks of the clowns at the 2014 Toronto Santa Parade. Many people, however, go to the parade to see the floats and that is what I will share with you today. Some of them I loved; and others I remembered seeing the last time I stood in the streets to watch the floats. Many appealed to the younger audience while others attracted the attention of sports’ fans.

The penultimate float was Mrs Claus – and then came Santa’s. The last float of the parade received many excited cheers from the children.

As Santa’s float passed by, people begun to leave their spots to go home. The parade was a pleasure to watch this year and was a wonderful start to the Christmas season.

Do you enjoy looking at the floats at the Santa Parade?

    1. The Toronto Santa parade is the biggest parade here. Many marching bands come to participate and many companies have floats in it (I guess it is seen as part of their advertising).

      1. well and I have a quick story to share from 6th grade. Our school always entered a float in the st patricks day parade and I just recall being upset that we lost a whole month of classes to help work on our float. Like 4 weeks in a row we worked on it and I was eager to get back to our telephone pole line drawings – and when we thought we were done – we came to class to make more – ( hundreds ) of tissue paper followers – it was not that boring cos they are fun to make – but I just recall wanting my art class -lol –

          1. that is actually a really good idea dear Teacher!! and it would have made me less disappointed – but our art lessons each week were not that long so I hope I did not make it sound like we worked too much on it – and it did have some fun – like I remember the chatting and all that…. but your idea would have made the float cool too – 🙂
