I never doubt their commitment to sparkle motion

The parade route is almost five miles long and takes several hours to complete. While that's grueling enough on a 90-degree day for people in floats, it's brutal for all the marching bands, majorettes, cheerleaders, and dance teams. While the tiniest dancers (like the Tabasco Sauce girls, shown at bottom) understandably looked pretty weary at the 4 1/2 mile mark where I was taking pictures, some--like the front wave of the Abbeville High band, shown above--somehow kept their shine on till the very end.
