I don’t care for parades, and I’d never stake out an area for a parade days prior to the parade. Do you like parades and how do you feel about staking out viewing areas on the parade route?
I’m not a big parade person. I will watch “at” them on TV but I don’t know if I’ve ever been to a big parade in person. I have gone to local parades,but that’s vastly different.
I have never understood parades. But if that’s how you want to spend your time? Knock yourself out.
I don’t understand the courtesy (?) of staking out a spot. It’s one thing to arrive early and stay where you intend to be. Or this could be a parade for which they are selling box seats. But staking it out days ahead of time seems to be so uncivil that it should not be recognized.
The biggest parade I ever went to (that I remember) was the 1968 Rose Parade in Pasadena. It was worth seeing in person — once. My cousin B lived on that street when she first moved to the west coast; they watched it from their apartment window.
I wouldn’t do that. I might have gone to one to see a grandchild march, but not a factor now. We don’t enjoy going to things where there are crowds.
I can’t imagine staking out a spot days before a parade! Although I can say that when we went to the Rose Parade in Pasadena last year that we sure did appreciate our VIP seat with prime views (Thanks YMT Vacations!). I guess if it’s a huge parade, it might be worth securing great seats.
