As promised a few days ago, I have some photos of the parade on the Saturday of Flower Festival.

The first thing we saw were several young women dressed in ballgowns with escorts. I think they were the candidates for the queen of the festival. What you can't see below is the very high stiletto platform heels she is wearing. This is near the end of the parade, which is nearly three miles long. I can't believe she was still able to smile at the crowds!!

There were a number of bands and various groups in regional dress. Here is one such group.

This enormous drum might have come from a temple. Notice the gongs on the side.

All the floats were completely covered with flowers, petals, acorns, etc. An astounding amount of work must have gone into them.
