A Word A Week Photo Challenge: Parade

This week Sue@A Word in Your Ear chose the word Parade in her dictionary.  Thinking back, I haven’t seen a parade in years and years.  The last one I remember was back in 2009 and that I still have on my computer.  There was another one that I remember in 2011 or so, but my computer died shortly after and I hadn’t backed up those pictures so they are all gone.  As much I always talk extensively about this, I have no choice.  I missed the St. Patrick’s Parade and I’m pretty sure we don’t have an Easter one 😉 So on with digging for parades!

Here I present to you the Disney parades at Christmas season in 2009 at Hong Kong Disneyland.

I don’t know these people with the animal puppet..they just happened to be in the picture…

Aside from that, we had the actual Christmas parade with a lot of our faves…

After the parade, to follow the joyous theme, we head into the Its A Small World ride and guess what?!?!?

At night, we had a parade of sorts with elves to welcome in the lighting of the tree.  I had seen the elves running across Disney Main Street earlier in the day and caught one of them to take a picture with so just a little personal touch 🙂


Please excuse the abundance of Christmas. I spent 11 hours with Christmas gifts selling stuff at the gift show, so I’m fed up with it too…but Disney characters are always so happy to look at and its the last parade I have photos for 🙂

On this happy parade mode, its the long weekend coming up. I have a 3 day weekend and its going to be super fun! 🙂

  1. Nice job Kim! Was it hard to catch that elf? What did you do with them after the picture throw them back? What type of bait did you use to trap them, fairy dust? 🙂 Sorry I was laughing at the phrase, “caught one of them to take a picture with so just a little personal touch”. The mental image is of you running around Disney with a butterfly net, hoping to capture an elf for this photo opportunity. The elf doesn’t look very happy. I know no elves were harmed in the taking of this picture. Catching an elf is childs play for a spy!
