Another Parade in Madrid, NM

Every year in Madrid, a parade of locals celebrates the lighting of the Christmas lights in this old mining town. It's a festive afternoon with bagpipe players leading the parade of happy dancers, the volunteer fire department truck, and pets of various breeds walking along with angels, gypsies and Santa on a motorcycle.

Parade highlights were folks like these... a Gander with his goose and a holiday cook walking her dog.
Posing nicely with their human friends are Solo the yak (w/Annie) and Murphy the friendly goat (w/Cindy).
