I Love a Parade

View from the Dragoncon Parade

Especially when I am in it!

Because I am the literary guest of honor here at Dragon Con this year, I was put into the parade. I got into a Camaro convertable, sat on the back seat, and waved and smiled at the folks as we went by. As I understand it the parade route this year was closed to everyone but Dragon Con attendees, all of whom had to be vaccinated (or testing negative). There were still quite a lot of folks. It was fun.

Hope your weekend is also going fabulously.

  1. And you had a beautiful day for it too. Be glad it wasn’t last weekend because IIRC it was brutally hot then.

    I wonder how they were able to close the streets? They are public streets used by a variety of businesses. Just one of those things I wonder about sometimes. I should try to get a life instead.

  2. It was a good call on the part of the Dragoncon organizers, but it’s still disappointing to miss it. I hope you had a great time!

  3. Glad you could make it. I attended your Friday reading session and really enjoyed it. So happy we got death instead of Christmas. 😄

    Can’t wait for the release of The Kaiju Preservation Society.

  4. John, if you love a parade, you’re welcome to join us on the street any time. The Beat Goes On Marching Band (www.tbgo.org) is an all-adult group (at least chronologically) focused on fun and performing regularly whenever there’s not a pandemic. You’d be our second literary addition; Robert Fulghum has performed with us a couple of times; see links to his writeups on the experience at http://thebeatgoesonmb.org/press.htm. Join us for More Smiles Per Mile!
