P-rade

Watching Princeton's annual alumni parade ("P-rade"), which drew 40,000 "tigers" back for Reunions. Below, a few mad scenes. (Last year's madness.)


Collage shots by Mr. L (I'm so impressed by that Class of '42 guy marching! It was 91F/33C!)

Lulu, you have a great time watching this fantastic parade. It's so colorful and so festive. I love the first picture, that is a very interesting angle and very compelling.

And a tiger, tall and funny is looking so great:)))))

Thank you so much! Those alumni really do go a bit nuts each year:)

Catherine said...

Talk about school spirit! Love how the children in the top shot are decked out in their oranges. My boys would have so enjoyed being there (and growling along :)

William Kendall said...

Forty thousand???

Our alumni aren't all that enthusiastic about coming back....

Good shots!

Jack said...

Don't you love traditions like this? I had a very fit Class of 1942 marcher from Brown on my commencement series last week.

LONDONLULU said...

William - yes, 40K! (20K alumni + 20K of their family, including some alumni grandchildren etc:)

Jack - haha, it's a bit mad but terrific!

Randy said...

Looks like fun. Nice shots too.

Looks like fun and I would love to take a photo with those cool tigers.

Thank you for the story about your classmate's letter to Mr. Schulz. You are right, I saw a video about his life and he seemed like such a nice man.

This P-rade looks like sooo much fun!

My apologies for the lack of posts and visits again. We all tried squeezing in a few last trips before the start of the new school year (today!) and this hermit has neither a laptop nor a tablet. :)
