Wow! Your website is a wonderful blog with photos, references, and personal fieldwork on processions. Makes me realize I need to do more research of personal blogs. I guess we write these blogs hoping others will read them, but who knows if our search engine optimization efforts are making our parade/procession content visible enough.Thanks for finding this blog and linking me up to your research.
This is a great post and I have only just discovered this blog forum. My own research is on religious processions in the UK (at moment on a very specific one to Manchester and surrounding areas. I have just sorted out my blog! www.paradesandprocessions.co.uk Great to see other people are as obsessed with parades as I am!
Are you a movie director, writer, or someone who thought, “you know, this show would be better with a parade scene”? No. Maybe you’re a person who believes parades are boring? Oh, the horror. Either way, I have a list of humorous parade parodies from movies, television commercials, sketch comedies, and live streaming broadcasts that are sure to make you reconsider what you think about a parade.
The latest post on the Parade Talk blog on H-Celebration is titled, "Marketing an Event Experience: where the zombies, skeletons, and unicorns roam for free or fee." In it, Tiff Graham takes up why we seem to enjoy death, zombies, and other scary things so much. Could the answer be as easy "marketing"?
