Fantasmagorical Fireworks!

A fantasmagorical show of fireworks over Stage Fort park! Did we witness controlled fires exploding in a multitude of colors and shapes projected high up into the sky with cascading sparkles trickling overhead for the pure act of enjoyment? Why yes we did!

2010 Good Morning Gloucester Horribles Parade Float Thank You and Pics

Sharon Lowe Photo

There were so many great Floats this year.  The disadvantage of walking in the parade is that you don’t get to see the parade, but from the floats that I did see that were around us they all were fantastic with a ton of effort and all deserved trophies of which there were many.  Hopefully I can get a list of the winners emailed by the Horribles Committee so all the others can be recognized on these pages. 

The Floats that I got to see because they were around us were the Annisquam kids playing Annie and that was outstanding.  When we pulled back into the parking lot at the end they were still going strong with their singing!  Glazed float was impressive also with the cute outfits and 50’s theme.  I love the bagpipes and they were behind us.  Chills every time I hear them. The Rhumb line always has a strong entry of musicians.  R&K Fuel and the John Deere Tractors was cool and the Steeple one was creative as hell.  I honestly didn’t get to see more than that because we were boxed in by big trucks in the parking lot but there was a lot of creative energy spent by people and I’m sure the committee wishes they could give everyone an award.

Pictures from the 2010 Horribles Parade Good Morning Gloucester Float in which our team won the special Judges Award for Best Non-Category Float.
