St. Patty's Day Parade Photo Dump

We enjoyed the Charlotte St. Patty's Day Parade with the Golden Retriever Rescue Club of Charlotte this past weekend.  Hmmm, maybe "enjoyed" isn't exactly the right word...  I kid!  We did have a great time :)  The Goldens all gathered in a grassy area from where we could easily join along the parade route.  All I could see when I pulled up was a sea of Goldens and humans in green shirts.  It was quite a sight to behold!
My plan had been to let the boys play and romp outside this morning before we left, in hopes that they'd be tired and therefore less rambunctious for the parade.  That plan failed.  Miserably.  We did play outside and though they appeared tired when we hopped in the car, they each quickly gained a second wind the moment we arrived and were beasts for the remainder of the day.
Nugget was not a fan of the drums... or the horses for that matter.  He began barking loudly once the horses came out of their trailers... and then about 20 more Goldens joined in the barking.  It was intense!  
So here are some pics... I'm too lazy to caption them all, but it's a parade so I figure they're pretty self explanatory :)
Our friend, Jackson - very festive!

Nugget is ready to get the party started
