Park Road Parade


Park Road is a street of small stores and restaurants in the southern part of West Hartford.  Every October the business association sponsors a charming little parade.  Here are some photos.  There will be more this coming week.  The top photo shows the street amid the beginnings of fall foliage.  And a spectator with foliage-colored hair.

(NightFall is an upcoming art event featuring larger-than-life puppets.)

Looks like a lot of fun. Is this in celebration of fall's arrival. Love all the color in the trees. I'll be the air smells good these days.

Looks like lots to see in that parade. I love the puppet-head guys! But, what strikes me the most is those wonderful fall colors. Beautiful.

I do love your colorful trees and what a fun parade indeed! I'm looking forward to more to come as well. Hope you're enjoying a beautiful, sunny day Jack!! I would tell you to go have fun, but somehow I think you do that without being told!!

Yesterday must have been parade day. From your photos I would say yours was better than mine. At least you had better weather.

I'm in awe at the colour of those trees in the top shot. All trees are still green here and it seems summer is back, which I love, of course! :-)

Very golden in those trees!

Wow, look at those trees. I like the rabbit too.

This gets me wondering why it is we all like parades. Is it because people love to look at one another and this is a perfect opportunity? We like uniforms? Costumes?

Michelle said...

Those little boys are sweet in their uniforms.

Another happy day in Hartford.

I think small parades are fun as they have a homey, neighbourly feel.

That second photo is super-charming and adorable! Love that small parade feel, almost makes me want to clap along to the paraders.
