Paris and I watched the K Days Parade the other day. I have never been to K Days, but I hear it has been going through an identity crisis, and has undergone several name changes. I know it is a big fair, but I wasn’t able to figure out what makes it different from other fairs by the parade.
It was a long parade. There were some nice floats but there were so many businesses represented, at times it seemed like I was watching a long commercial.
It was the first time I have seen helium balloons in a parade for a long time. I watched a pig fly.
There were princesses and fairy godmothers.
The Enoch Cree had beautiful dancers with their float.
I have no idea why Angry Bird was there, and I wonder about Copyright violations.
Paris was excited that Animecon was represented.
We had planned to park near 105 Street and watch the parade from there, but construction and lack of parking moved us to Churchill Square where we were able to take in Taste of Edmonton as well.
There was a group of kids working out by the stage.
Drift made us lunch, it took us a long time to decide.
After the parade we cooled our feet in the fountain in front of City Hall. My favourite fountain goer was a young girl with an umbrella – she seemed to be having the most fun.
