What a great treat for Pensacola Beach to have Olympic medalist and champion professional boxer Roy Jones Jr. as the Grand Marshall of our Surfing Santa Beach Parade this afternoon.
Roy was outgoing and loved the crowd as much as they loved him.
You can see how approachable this native son of Pensacola was today.
The Marine Corps color guard is impeccable.
McGuire's Bagpipe Band wears the tartan of McDonald, Lord of the Isle...
and their dedicated pipers and drummers are loved and renowned throughout the southeast!
Ah ha, get ready for a treat! Here comes the Dancingly Yours dancers!
Elf Bettie Lee at Santa's back!
Is that a French Bulldog I see!
Whenever I spy animals, I completely lose focus. Isn't this little peek-a-boo fellow adorable?
And this little Daschund didn't like the noise at all!
Ahhh...look at this little munchkin. Isn't she adorable? I wonder if she caught her teddy bear from one of the floats. They were throwing lots of toys to the tots today!
