Pomona Christmas Parade 2009

It was wet and only slightly wild for Saturday’s parade. Here’s a link to Bulletin photographer Thomas Cordova’s gallery of 17 photos and a link to the Downtown Pomona blog; scroll down to the parade photos.

I rode in the parade, as Cordova documented:

And my friend Lisa McPheron snapped a shot of one of the wackier floats, a rolling teeter-totter:

    A little snow in the background of the first picture and you’re “Scoop” Allen, the newspaper reporter from the Bedford Falls Bulletin (who should have been) in “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

    The Goddess Pomona must be looking over your shoulder. You even got a car in which to ride! Let’s hope there is a parade next year.

    I tried to put in a “good word” to you-know-who but we really did need the rain for my beloved valley. I am proud that the parade came back and am always amused by my gringo friend David’s insights into that great city. I look forward to his next “excellent” adventure.

    [We understand, Mr. Palomares. If anyone can see the big picture, it’s you. — DA]
