Columbus Day Parade

10 October 2005

Downtown Birmingham hosted a small Columbus Day Parade today… leading the way was a high school marching band, followed by a Christopher Columbus look-a-like and the Knights of Columbus floats. A flotilla of motorcycles followed with two Bamma Belles (wearing more makeup than Phyllis Diller on a bad day). Next in line were about six fire engines promoting Fire Prevention Week. Taking up the rear were a small troop of police horses and their riders. Small, sweet, and a good distraction in the lunch hour for the city workers.

    Oh, that makes me homesick. Beautiful pictures though!

    So now there’s old ‘Bama Belles? When I was in B’ham, the Bama Belles (at least I think that’s what they were called) were 18 or 19 year old girls in big antebellum dresses.
