Thanks! Great video - I've given up going because it is so crowded. Your video could have been twice as long and it would have been even greater! :)

Nice editing Brian. Back in the 70's I worked with a guy at Pacific Tree Service who was very involved in this parade. Our boss, Wayne, let us use a boom truck to put up the banners on the street light pole arms on Cabrillo Blvd. in the morning before the parade. Then, I usually got drafted to get inside a float and push. It was always fun. Until the clean up. Ha. My hat is off to all of the behind the scenes people as well as the "paraders".

Thank you very much for the comment! The parade is my favorite event of the year to film. I grew up watching it and I'm happy to be a part of it. There is so much work that goes into it, really amazing.

Wow - thanks for capturing our group and the entire parade so well, Brian! (I was part of Cris Basimah's belly dance troupe that danced up the "hallway" of red-feathered Hip Brazil samba dancers -- sooo fun.) I always look forward to your Solstice videos and this one did not disappoint. Thanks again.

W-O-W. They really outdid themselves this year with the costumes. Terrific, absolutely sublime. If I'd known Aquaman, Freddie Mercury and Bruce (the shark) were going to be there, I might have made the effort to attend.

Oh thank you thank you thank you! I was asking for a video. I am always too sick to be at the parade these past few years and I love the Solstice Parade. I am so excited. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
