PERSONAL: Tottenham Santa Claus Parade 2011

I meant to do a blog post about the Tottenham Santa Claus Parade back at the end of December, but obviously that didn't happen!

Growing up in a place smaller than Tottenham, the local parade was always something to look forward too. We didn't have a Santa Claus parade (too cold I think!), but there was a Labour Day parade, and I can remember being in it doing Japanese dancing when I was a kid.

So here it is, better late than never. :) I always take so many pictures, so it's always tough to narrow it down. Here are a few of the highlights.

One of our friends was selling popcorn outside the shop his mom works in. Proceeds were for the local Food Bank. :)

Ben is impatiently waiting for the parade to get down to where we were standing to watch...trying to avoid my camera.

And here it comes!!

He loves waving to everyone. :)

You can't have a parade without the bagpipes!

I took this one for my mom. She likes McD's. ;)

Ben even got to shake some hands!

Love the bands. :)

And there she is......Jordan Clark!

One of Santa's Reindeer??

They were moving fast, so it's a bit blurry, but here are the kids of GSI Taxi. :)

The Gus Bus!!

Hey! I know those guys!

It must have been difficult to play in the cold.

And here is the guest of honour.

I snuck a shot in between floats of Ben waving to Santa.

And if I remember correctly, I think the folks beside me were drinking some hot coffee. :)

Ben said that we should be in the parade next time with Picture Your Life Photography. I told him we'll see about that. haha :)

Thanks to everyone who was in the parade and who was involved in organizing it. Such a great tradition. :)

Thanks for looking!
