The Hillbilly Float at the Lake Shore Santa Claus Parade

The Lake Shore Santa Claus Parade never fails to amuse me. It's literally the same floats every year, but it's so damn convenient I can't miss it.

My favourite float every year is the Hillbilly float. I took a few photos to show you what you're missing.

I was one block east of you for our annual tradition of breakfast at Lucky Dice before the parade.

My favourite Etobicoke Santa Claus parade moments:
- watching Rob Ford pelt children with candy canes like he was a quarterback throwing a touchdown pass
- seeing the Dragon float turn a corner on two wheels while backfiring

Reminds me of our Oakville parade. My brother in low pulled a ski doo trailer with a decorated Christmas tree tied to it for the Block Parents group my sister in law was involved with. It was pretty basic.
I think we just get spoiled as the Toronto parade just blows everything out of the water. Looking back I appreciated our little parade, and the great thing was you could show up about 15 minutes before it began and get a great view.
