I took part in a parade - well - rather me and my other Red Hat friends took part in a parade. A few people from several chapters came to town to show Melbourne that turning 50 doesn't mean you have to give up on fun.
The annual Moomba Parade as well as other festivities and world class waterskiing events on the Yarra take place during the Labour Day weekend. We walked down Swanston Street and over Princes Bridge right here in the heart of our lovely city.

The sides of the roads were packed with people, lots of families waiting for the different community groups and floats to come past.
We had such fun but oh it was so hot.:)
Sorry its a rather small photo - taken by another person's DH so I can't grumble but if you click it will miraculously enlarge itself (or at least I hope it will ) and you will see us in all our glory.
I'm on the front row over to your left with the red runners on, sorry not looking at the camera. Jen is the lovely lasy having her picture taken at the time.
We were so glad to be near the front of the parade, it must have been scorching for those who came later and I was so glad I put my capri pants on even tho they weren't quite the dark purple they should have been. :))
