Madge & Mildred at the Parade, 1975

Today’s date will always stand out in my mind, and I hope that everyone will take time to reflect on what happened 6 years ago and put into perspective what really matters in life. Now, back to the blog. Today’s slides are marked January 1975 (but most likely taken in December) and they begin with our 2 heroines, Madge & Mildred. You just know that Mildred is looking for her lighter...dagnabbit where is that durn thing? Ah forget it...we’ll just watch the parade. Slide 2 is most likely these gents warming up for a few bars of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.”

These heralder’s uniforms are still being used in the Candlelight Processional, albeit with a few modifications:

2 nods to Fantasia:

I think this one narrowly escaped being dinner at Knott’s Berry Farm:

And what Christmas Parade is complete without Santa and his sexy Santa-ettes?

That lady looking in her purse is priceless...I can almost hear her rough, raspy voice.

And Santa's elves are hot!

The goose is from the Aristacats? Two biddy sisters who travel together looking for there drunken uncle.

Hey Brian - thanks for identifying the goose. It still freaks me out though! Thanks for the link to the 1972 parade - very cool.
