Thanks girls, Mimi you are so right, Lyndee, look at my new puzzle.
Makes me wonder what year the very first parade happened.......and why.
The floats are so interesting, but the people are too. Look at how they are dressed in the older one, a boy in a suit, girls in pretty dresses etc. Don't see that at a parade anymore. :))
No Brian, it did surprise me too, but there were already such things in the Middle Ages. I (Wikipedia) wrote more about it in the info tomorrow.
Fascinating, I thought the concept of elaborate floats in the flower parades was fairly recent.
Thanks girls. I'm glad you also like the old pics. Beekay, they are much older. I will find out something about it and write it in the info tomorrow.
Lovely, lovely floats. Thanks for sharing.
Wonderful floats from yesteryear. It is incredible that people come up with original ideas in the present day when the tradition goes back so far. Thanks Ank.
I love old photos, thank you so much sis :-)))))) I hope, you have a nice day :-)))
Did these parades first start in 1961 Ank?
