Lining up for the parade!
Real veterans came first
This guy looked like he'd been there and done that and could still give me a licking.
The older veterans got to ride in a vintage muscle car.
Next came the fake veterans - from the "Pig War" between the US and UK over San Juan Island. Nobody died, save one pig.
Cute girls sprinkled throughout...
...and wondering what the delays were.
The grocery store threw candy to the crowds were a big hit with Lars.
Things gradually got odder. The undersea life float (dragon?) was interestingly quirky.
It's guardian Orca was very enthusiastic.
Max was there, also giving out candy.
The island's community theaters sent word out by paperboy of their new shows.
And somehow managed to snare Ozzy Osborne as Scrooge? Or something?
Take that, Wagner!
The Lions had a dixieland band on a trailer - they were cooking.
I loved the look of the guitar player.
And the drummer.
The animal shelter had people walking dogs to show how cute they were. And they were cute. But the black lab here has just taken an ENORMOUS steaming dump on the parade route. Her handler wasn't quite sure what to do.
Now for the more commercial bits. Felicity makes fantastic cakes. Wears them too! ?
I have no idea what happened from now on.
If you have a DeLorean, don't do this!

The smoke is from a huge burnout they just did.

At least her beard was neatly trimmed.
