4th of July Parade Slideshow


A great time was had by all at this year's 40th anniversary parade. The judges' panel this year was made up of Nancy Pyle, Cheryl Reynolds, Jack Shaughnessy, Carol Rosen and Anna Mayer. The parade results and 4 on the 4th results will be posted in the next couple days. A special thanks goes out to judge Anna Mayer (who is a fantastic child photographer) for posting this parade slideshow. Enjoy!


Another local resident, Mark Stagi, has posted a parade slideshow on his blog site. Make sure you have the latest version of Quicktime installed.

  8. Uh...does anyone know in what year the Woodstock Festival actually was? Apparently not since Upper PV "shockingly" got away with not exactly qualifying for the "40" theme and landing second place. It is amazing to me that the judges overlooked this fact...then again...it's pretty much par for the course when it comes to MIA judging.

    To my knowledge the MIA parade has never had qualifying criteria and the theme is meant to be interpreted with a certain degree of artistic license. It would be a black mark on the neighborhood if parade floats were disqualified because the entry doesn't meet a supposed "accuracy criteria". The parade judges do not disqualify entries - they are their to judge enthusiasm, participation, music, etc, etc.
