The Starlight Parade before starlight
I was walking around NW on Saturday evening a few hours before the Starlight Parade began. All of the floats were sitting along a few cordoned off blocks, most of them unoccupied. Now what stopped me from hijacking one of them and driving it down Broadway in a deviant act of rebellion against a nefarious college dean ala Animal House? Among other reasons, the small army of sheepdogs that were lounging on a corner waiting in the shade and killing time until the parade started. They looked mean. Oh, and I guess there were security guards milling about too.
Anyway, here's a few iPhone photos of the floats....
...and this row of vendor carts parked in front of the US Bank on SW Broadway practically screamed "please, screw with us."
