Newer member here, so if this isn't the right forum category apologies all around.
With Christmas parades already happening this year or close to it, I wanted to see some pics of the members with their trucks in the Christmas parades and the like. Memorial Day, 4th of July, Veterans day, you name it let's see those parade pics.
I do not have one of our newly acquired truck in a parade but we will after next Saturday.

===========================


WHAT'S UP HERE. headscratch
Edited this post. Moved the thread to the Office area (where you are viewing it now) and have distributed the images to various other forums where they can be admired. grin

So send in those December (Christmas) holiday Chevy and GMC truck pictures (and related images wink ).

Merry Christmas. brrrrr
~~ Peggy M

No problem. There's a good one here, in General Truck, and has a nice short story to go along with it. That was the first one I saved. thumbs_up

Here is a picture from my hometown annual Christmas parade last year. This year the parade is tomorrow evening. I will be participating again. The first pic is my truck. I could not resist also posting a picture of my granddaughter posing as Cindy Lou Who from the parade. Obviously the theme of the float was Whoville and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Our parade is tonight, so I'll post some new pictures soon. It is a big deal around here, even covered live by Austin Tx CBS affiliate 90 miles away.

Here are a few from the past. The fire department pictures were from my previous house north of Houston. Our VFD did toy collection for a nearby kid's home and delivered just before Christmas with sirens and lights. The year of the picture I got to lead the parade.

Here is a video of last year's Fredericksburg Christmas parade. My truck is at 29:45 into the video.

These are screen captures from videos taken at last night's Christmas parade in Fredericksburg Tx, so the pictures are not as clear as I'd like. Check out the DUKW (Duck) coming the other way in the 4th picture. That's my brother Jack riding shotgun and doing most of the waving.

I cranked the idle speed up to about 850 RPM and it kept the truck at the correct parade speed when in granny low.



Some inquiring minds asked about that giant Truck Hat in the photos (below). Bill supplied the details in a post in the Greasy Spoon. Thanks, Bill! ~ Staff

We had our town Christmas parade yesterday and we had a ton of fun. First time in a parade for Ole Red since purchasing.
A few hills and working the clutch more than I would have liked but it did fine. No overheating thankfully.
two of my kids were in the back throwing out candy and such. Our youngest in her santa hat with Chriatmas treats in hand.
Yes that is my other truck behind me.
