A Parade of New Year's Parade Photos

It's no longer the Cotton Bowl Parade that snakes through downtown Dallas on New Year's Day. Wouldn't make sense -- the Cotton Bowl's now in Arlington, in case you missed that breaking news. And so it was the rebranded Comerica Bank New Year's Day Parade that had downtown tied up during the mid-afternoon hours yesterday. The 6-year-old who lives in my house wanted to go -- nothing else to do, he said, making a strong case on a slow day.

So I put him to work: He took all the photos featured after the jump. He also offers the following review: "I liked the parade, because it was very interesting and very fun." To each his own, I tell him, suggesting it was a bit more rinky-dink than I'd expected -- looked more like our neighborhood July 4th parade than a big-city bowl-game kick-off. "I loved the parade," he counters. I tell him that's good, since parades are for kids. "Parades are for everyone," he says. "Doesn't matter how tall or how small." Point taken. Now jump.
