The Parada del Sol

Yesterday Scottsdale had its annual Parada Del Sol.   I’ve lived here for 10 years and I’ve yet to actually see the parade live.   My sleep number bed is just too comfortable on a Saturday morning to bother getting up at the crack of dawn and fight crowds to get a good view.   Instead I wait until Sunday morning when the newspaper puts together a slideshow of photos from the parade.   Looks like it was fun and maybe someday I’ll go.   Maybe not.

    I’ve yet to do a parade here in Prescott. First off, they happen too early in the day, as you so carefully remark — I’m a night owl, not an early bird. Second, I figure that, being short, I’ll never manage to get out in front of the crowds unless I get downtown really early & even then, there are always those who will crowd in front of one! So those events go past, without benefit of GrannyJ’s pictures! Ah, well. It’s always good to sleep in.

  2. Karen,
    I’m disappointed, 10 years in our fair city and you have yet to see the Parada del Sol Parade live? I have a deal for you… email me with your contact information and you can be my guest at the 2009 Parada del Sol Rodeo this Friday at 1:00 p.m.
    p.s. Thanks for blogging about us.
