Decorated vehicles were what the parade was mainly comprised of, not floats. Then there were combos of that like this train pulling a caboose float. There were already people 5 deep along the parade route so wide shots were impossible without having onlookers frame the foreground. That's why I mostly used my Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D lens to get past the crowds.
This candid of some women singing and dancing on a parade float made me smile the first time I saw it. Their contrasting expressions make me wonder what is in their minds, especially the woman to frame left! What did she see to make her react like that??
There were many classic and vintage cars well decorated. These were my favorite parts of the Twinkle Parade, as I love cars and seeing them glowing down the streets was pretty cool.
