More Pendleton Christmas Parade Pictures

The Pendleton Christmas Carriage Parade is a non-mechanized, horses/mules-only parade. There were lots of people riding horses and driving horses/mules. It was twice as big as last year, so it must be catching on. This is its third year. The parade was started off by the famous Happy Canyon horse and rider carrying the American flag.

This entry always takes the cake. The Grinch is the driver and in front you've got the Grinch's dog "pulling" the wagon. I think this is such a clever entry!

The kids always love the miniature horses. I thought this tiny buggy was adorable.

The draft horses had their bells on in full glory. They sounded very festive. I thought this pair were especially majestic.

Hope you've all enjoyed seeing these pictures. Going to try to catch up with my blogging this week.

I lived in Pendleton for several years, and MY favorite part of that particular parade was the Cowboy Band. I mean, HOW do you play a trumpet or a trombone while riding????? They were great and my favorites.

They didn't have to Cowboy band in the Christmas parade, everybody's playing fingers would probably turn blue, but I agree with you. It is absolutely facinating to watch! The horses look like they are all on their last legs.

How fun! I do miss that about living in the smaller areas. I'm told we have parades around here, but I guess I just never know when they are.
