Columbus Day Parade

large_2_251.jpgMy office happens to be right on 5th Avenue in midtown, so the streets are all barricaded off for the big parade today. When some office friends and I went to grab a quick lunch, I took a minute to observe the proceedings. I must say that parades in this city are so ridiculous! I watched for 5-6 minutes as random cars drove by, with random flags on them that were not recognizable, and random (often old) people in them waving and smiling, as if everyone was so excited to see them. Not once was somebody recognizable. I am all for celebration, but it seems that the casting agents for this years Columbus parade were really scraping the bottom of the barrel in search of talent.

Is anyone else both horrified and amused by the state of parades in this city?
