Gig Harbor Parade

Posted June 22nd, 2010 by   |  Photography, Travel  |  Permalink

A few weeks ago we had our annual small town Gig Harbor Parade. What a great event. Everyone in town comes out to participate, help or just watch and it is like a giant family reunion. We all cheer for the kids, wave to our mayor, shake hands with the local politicians, and laugh at the antics.

From a photography standpoint, it is one of my favorite places to shoot because access is incredibly easy. In fact, mixing it up with the crowd is easy to do in a small parade like this since there aren’t any fence lines or security guards yelling at you to get back. If you see something you want to shoot, then you just step out and snap the pic.

The theme this year was “pirates” so lots of people were dressed up in their best pirate garb, including the animals!

Here are the photos.
