Shadow Shot Sunday - Gala Day Parade

Today was our local Gala Day Parade. Schools, organisations and businesses and individuals come together and enter decorated floats, or dress up and walk around the town accompanied by various bands. This year's theme was Homecoming Scotland 2009.
Here are two Scots boys, my younger son and my grandson, waiting impatiently on the parade to start - flags at the ready


First came a man selling balloons...




...then the Gala Queen's carriage...



A brass band...


...and a pipe band (of course).



Then I looked across the road and saw this...



Our old picture house, now a community theatre and arts venue.

Hope you enjoyed my shadow parade. See lots more Shadow Shots at Hey Harriet.

This is a great collection of shadows! Looks like a fun parade. The first picture is so cute, they look so serious waiting with their flags ready and watching intently. I'm glad you had a fun time despite the weather :)
