One of my hobbies is collecting 8mm home movies, and whenever I find one from a local estate sale, chances are good that the fuzzy footage will depict one of the city's Grand Floral Parades from a long-gone era. Beloved for over a century, the procession celebrates more than just flowers—it's a colorful testament to the beauty in local, regional, and international communities, with floats and "mini-floats" decked out in dazzling blooms. Also, it's just fun. Alongside the parade of floats, you'll find musicians, equestrians, marching groups, drill teams, vintage automobiles, dancers, llamas, and more. That's a lot to celebrate.
