Christmas, Knoxville Style

Early last month - December's First Friday actually, Knoxville had a Christmas Parade downtown on Gay Street. I adore parades! It was the longest parade I think I've ever been too, but worth every bone chilling minute.

The streets were crowded with bystanders, and much of the parade consisted of your normal fare - there were tons of floats, high school marching bands, local pageant winners in fancy cars, dance troupes, etc... but then there were some that only Knoxville could offer. I love it here.

Below are some highlights -

Ginormous bottle of shampoo for the entire city's hair care needs

Teen-aged beauty queens, Nope. We are admiring our County Commissioners.

Speed boat full of kiddos


Big Ball in the back of a pick-up

Elvis IS alive! And, where else would he be than in a Knoxville Christmas Parade.

Mobile Boxing Ring. We saw about three body slams before the ring rolled on by.

Local Band rocking out. The acoustics actually weren't that bad.
