Walk, Dont Run
With consumerism and capitalism taking a hit this holiday season, we urge you to stand up to one more enemy of the people: Big Parade.
Whats that? You like the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade, its mega balloons not-so-subtly priming youngsters to ask, nay, demand the latest toy from a thinly disguised advertisement (they call it a television show)? We are talking about a holiday institution that has canonized both Barney and Baby Shamu.
Today when youre craving a throng of strangers moving in unison to the tune of holiday anthems, we suggest Delray Beachs Annual Holiday Parade. This years theme, A Traditional Holiday, promises Santa Claus riding on a vehicle whose rep hasnt suffered in the past year a fire truck. What, no Prius? The parade starts at 6 p.m. and heads west on Atlantic Avenue (from Venetian Drive), then ends at the Tennis Center (201 West Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach).
