Holidazzle Parade 2009


Last night was a mild night, 27 degrees,
perfect for going to the Holidazzle. We had never gone before.
Each of the kids got a fiber optic light toy to play with as we waited for the parade to start.

If you don't know about the Holidazzle, it is a parade of lighted floats and persons held in downtown Minneapolis (on the Nicollet Mall) each year in an effort to promote the downtown area. It is purposely a short parade as the weather is unpredictable.

Each of the displays had a fairytale theme.
This is the crocodile from Peter Pan.


This is the Gingerbread House from Hansel and Gretel.

This snowman is basically a giant baseball promoting the Minnesota Twins.

This float had a "bell choir", followed by people dresses as Christmas bulbs.
