Fantasy of Lights Parade 2008

Here is a photo of my daughter's Girl Scout troop in the Fantasy of Lights Parade on Saturday. This year's parade theme was "Christmas Ornaments."

My daughter's troop dressed as angels, in case you can't tell. I was having a bit of trouble with my camera and did not manage to get a very good photo.

They made their own costumes and they sang Christmas songs while they marched in the parade. They also pulled a wagon with a CD player with the music to sing to, and a 4-foot Christmas tree decorated with Angel ornaments. You can't see that wagon in this photo, though.

They were in a big group of Scout troops, and each troop wore coordinated costumes. There was a troop of gingerbread girls (with the troop leaders dressed as bakers with hats and aprons), a troop of reindeer, a troop of candy canes, a troop of snowflakes... it was all quite adorable.

Here are photos of a few of the other parade floats and groups:

As you can tell, I haven't perfected the art of uploading photos in Blogger yet. The parade looked a lot better in person.

aww that's adorable.
I was an angel for Halloween once. I was way older and curvier so I didn't look as innocent.

I really like the ornament costume idea. Sorry I missed it.
