The rainy weather couldn't stop hundreds of parade goers from flocking to the star studded parade. The parade began at the Enron Field ballpark and circled six blocks to end at George R. Brown Convention Center. This years theme for the parade was "Star Struck!' The parade showcased seven elaborately decorated floats that featured various "stars!' The parade consisted of five different segments. The segments included Hollywood stars, which featured NYPD Blue star James McDaniel, Texas stars, which featured country singer Robert Earl Keen, sports stars, cartoon stars and stars on ice. Guest commentator Chris McDonald also added star appeal to the festivities. McDonald stars in the CBS drama "Family Law" and has appeared in numerous films. The parade lasted for an hour and was packed with excitement from beginning to end. It included costumed characters, balloons and live entertainment. Even Mayor Lee Brown made a special appearance in the celebration. Different marching bands contributed to the parade with strong drum beats and glamorous drill teams. Some bands even came as far as Georgia to march in Houstons "264^ 2641 Community parade. The University of Houston marching band and the Cougar Dolls represented UH in the parade. Cougar Doll Bonnie McSwain helped celebrate Thanksgiving in the parade. "I always have fun doing parades!' she said. "I really enjoy the Thanksgiving parade because it allows you to be with your friends in the morning and your family in the afternoon." Bank United also hosts a float preview the Tuesday before Thanksgiving to give people an opportunity to get an upclose view of the floats. The preview was held at George R. Brown Convention Center and various crafts were set up to entertain children. Musical group Soulfruit entertained the crowd as well as magician David Driscoll. A miniature parade circled around the crowd and was led by the green-jump suit clad Bank United guys. Forest Brook High School marching band provided a back beat to the mini-parade as they circled the crowd. The Thanksgiving parade gave Houstonians a great start to their holiday. When the parade was over, they were able to return to their homes and enjoy their turkey dinner with the memories of the festive celebration. A country dancing couple two- stepped their way around the crowd in a mini-parade at the Float Preview in George R. Brown Convention Center. Photo hv Ashlv Alberto Thanksgiving Parade \265T
