Tan lines, clowns, sunburn, fairies, balloons, Bob the Builder, iced coffees, Burger King, elves, ice creams, and Santa.
This sums up yesterday. Auckland Farmers Santa Parade 2010. What a great day.
I love knowing that I am helping to create new experiences for Marlee. I remember going to the parades when I was younger and it was one of my favorite Christmas memories (next to stockings).
Marlee was so good. We arrived nearly two hours before the parade was due to start (oops), scored a front row position, had Burger King and iceblocks for lunch and waited in the sun.
“She kept pointing at different icecreams, so I got one of each.” – Brad.
The Parade went on for at least an hour and a half. We retreated from the sun after about an hour and sat in Starbucks until it was over.
After party at Aotea Square with Bob and Builder, Cinderella puppet window display at Smith & Coughey’s, Dunkin’ Doughnuts galore, a giant pink zebra balloon and a wander down Queen St finished off the parade experience.
