Street Parades From The Past

1960s, 1970s, Everyday People • 10218 Views • Comments Off on Street Parades From The Past

Since the Middle Ages there have been parades and carnivals, from lavish processions like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade to a few Leyland lorries bound for the local town fete.

Here we have a few Fab floats from the past. At the front of the parade is a rather groovy Maas Brothers one from Florida, complete with Op-art decor, Dancers and a band.Then at the end of the procession is an interesting low budget Planet of the Apes themed float courtesy of Debenhams, can you spot the apes? Also keep an eye out for a record breaking float featuring Tillman the Skateboarding dog.
