Parade Junk, Canton, NC - 2014
(Click on photo to enlarge.)
I don't think I've ever been to a parade, anywhere, that didn't have several of these guys roaming the parade route. They all have the same "borrowed" shopping cart loaded with colorful, plastic crap that is irresistible to the eyes of young children. Every item is guaranteed to break or pop shortly after getting home from the parade. Parents know that, but we whip out our wallets anyway. (Yes, I've wasted my money too.) Where do these guys come from? Where do they go? Who knows? One thing is for certain, they'll be there at the next parade.
