The Biggest Santa Parade In The World

by Ricardo December. 11, 2011 4168 views



Yesterday (11-12-11), We Did it!
Last year we entered for the world's Guiness Book with the biggest Santa Parade of the world, with 13 thousand people. This year We beat last year's with more than 15 thousand people, and there were people willing for their suit, but there were not anymore… Next year they promised to make 20 thousand suits.
I've participated as a Santa, but decided not to post any pic of me, but yes of the parade and the event itself.
RTP station, one of the national stations made it live, and so the pictures of the live thing, didn't get so good (i only used my 55mm lens) and plus there were millions of people and I wasn't able to be always changing of camera, also it was rainy during the parade, the reason of not soooooo many pics of it.

Hope next year i'll participate again, and hope some of you will, because there were people from all over the world wanting and have participated in this happy parade! all free!

Meo and Sapo (Frog) are Cable TV and ADSL Internet

Meo kids

An announcer from The Radio Saying we beat the Record!

An Alternative Santa as my friend says
