In an effort to make it seem more like the holidays, my husband convinced me to go the Montrose Christmas parade. We were there an hour early and the place was already packed. Blankets and chairs claimed different families' spots up and down the entire street. It was almost movie-like with all the white lights in the trees and little kids running around the sidewalk waiting for Santa. We grabbed our coffee and something from the bakery and found a seat on top of a brick bench area where we were above everyone else. The perfect spot! I took some videos of the parade, but they are definitely not the best videos. They are kind of shaky and blurry at times, but there are a few good points like when the huge blowup duck fell off the back of the truck it was on.
First there was the Pasadena Humane Society with a bunch of adorable dogs, some even wore antlers.
There was also this group that did fire breathing tricks, etc.
Finally, the big duck. The people around us just kept commenting on where the guy was sitting, which you might even be able to hear.
