My citys Christmas parade

Was held last nite (sorry to hear you missed it Kelly), but i and my familly (son & partner) had the pleasure of taking part.

Was great but strange at the same time, since i can remember as a very, very young child i have whatched every single one bar 2 i think. this year though i was lucky to have been involved in the design, construction of the float and then to actualy be in the parade.

Must be honest though, we only had around 7-8 sessions to get it all sorted and orginised and at few times i was close to walking. Reason was, with everything else i have going on this turned out to be quite an effort (not helped by a lot of people on the float only happy to be on it-NOT help with the nitty gritty).

But on the day was fantastic, the kids loved it and so did us grown ups!!. Our float was Peter Pan and to top off a fantastic nite WE WON THE BEST FLOAT AWARD.

At the end, everyone involved had a party at the local Guildhall, attended by the Mayor, local radio and some Panto stars (well i aint ever heard of them!).

Great day/nite, well worth the effort.

Ah well done on winning I missed it more so because I took the kids to Mcdonalds on Fabian Way first LOL But nevermind. Hey, didnt you think of asking the major if Swansea could have better lights next year instead of the cast offs from Blackpool LOL.

Cheers Kelly for the membership, very kind. Though how do i get it and use it???

The mayor to be honest just walked round and smiled and shook hands, just doing what he had to i suppose-seemed a nice enough fella though.

I havent really noticed the lights yet as i didnt see them go on as our float was the 1st and the lights go switched on behind us. Though i do think things could be done to make the parade better-but thats not saying the parade is rubbish as it aint bad really.

Mumble is due a parade soon, i go to that last few years and its not bad,more interactive for the kids as santa has a walk around. Ill let you know when it is as soon as i find out.

Thanks again for da membership-let me know how i use it.
