I took Buffy to go and check out the Natal Day Parade. It was a great opportunity to socialize her and expose her to new experiences as we walked along the parade route.
The parade this year started in Halifax and crossed over the McDonald Bridge to Dartmouth which I thought was an intersting idea. It symbolized the very tangible link between these two very different cities. The only hitch was that horses were not allowed to cross the bridge.
The bridge was closed for the full day for the parade, a "bridge walk" and other events. It was rather marvellous after the parade was over to see the bridge empty of traffic.
There were maraching bands, multicultural groups and of course the Shriners were tootelling around on their little bikes and mini cars.
Hey Buffy, you're looking the wrong way ! The parade is behind you.
Air cadets escorted a plane advertising the Nova Scotia International Air Show in September. They walked by the plane ensuring no one got bonked in the head as it turned the corner.
In the background you can see the toll booth lanes for the bridge.
Someone has to clean up...
