My return to the Grove

It was the 34th King Mango Strut Parade and my 20th?  Long before I got to know who the Hashers were they irritated me by disrupting the parade and now I look forward to seeing them running amok in the parade.  Each year the events of the past year are brought to their inth degree bordering on silliness.  Mensa is there yearly and each year , I can not for the life of me read their signs.  They have so much to say and on such small cards.  This is a time when I get to see former friends of Fred and myself.  Fred group is down to 3  and according to the announcer always his favorite.  Really,  they are not clever they are themselves.  lol but they have been strutting for as many years as the parade has been in existence . No one names their kid Fred anymore.  Once upon a time there was a Fredericka cat entered, Fred Dog. and Frederico or any variation of the Fred name is welcome.DSCN3884 1052926_10153284114076500_6636649636049470816_o  Of course the bands are always a big part as they stay on till six for every one to enjoy and dance to once the parade is done  This is for participants and spectators alike a.  For more photos go to the Coconut Grove Grapevine, you won’t believe who dropped the Bannana that starts the parade or who the Grand Marshal was. DSCN3860 DSCN3862 DSCN3861 DSCN3833 DSCN3868 DSCN3840DSCN3845DSCN3854DSCN3863 DSCN3869 DSCN3871 DSCN3879 DSCN3882 DSCN3887 DSCN3889 DSCN3890 DSCN3896 DSCN3901 DSCN3907 DSCN3909 DSCN3913 DSCN3925 DSCN3939 DSCN3944 DSCN3952 DSCN3859DSCN3946 DSCN3958 DSCN3957 DSCN3959 DSCN3961 DSCN3964 DSCN3969For those that don’t know there are brainstorming meetings to determine what is funny and what is not.  There is a raffle party as funding is not accepted for editorial or censorship reasons.  Everything goes and it’s all for the fun of it.
