2004 Cary Christmas Parade

These are some photos taken at the 2004 Cary Christmas parade along with a few from the Holly Springs Christmas Parade.   Although the NCMVPA participated in the Garner, Apex, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, and Cary parades this year, I forgot to take my camera with me on the first weekend of parades, and my battery died on me during the Cary parade.   Some of the photos on this page were sent to me by "Tonkadoctor" who drove up from Fort Bragg to join us in the parades (driving Amnon's Blazer since his own M37 is not ready for action yet).  Photos 1-18 are by "Tonkadoctor" while photos 19-27 are mine.  Other photos taken during events may be found on the NCMVPA website.
