I did take a bunch of pictures, but not too many turned out. I have don't have enough experience with the camera, or probably not the right lens, to capture what I wanted.
Eva Longoria was the Grand Marshall of the parade.
Parades are NOT free at Fiesta. You pay ahead of time to reserve a seat. This one was $20 each. I am going to another one on Saturday night and that one is $10. There are thousands of chairs lined up all along the river and where this is enough room there are bleachers. Each chair has a section, row and seat number, as does your ticket. We got there a couple of hours early. This is a picture of where we were sitting before the crowds arrived.
Some people watched from the bridge. That was free. I think they might have had a better view.
And then the seats directly across from us.
A few pictures from the parade.
This guy was a crackup. He was very animated and really into the music and the crowd.
