BIKER RAGS MINI AT THE 2014 CHRISTMAS PARADE

Biker Rags MINI in the 2014 Knoxville Christmas Parade.

If you attended the downtown Knoxville Christmas Parade this past Friday evening, (December 5, 2014), you might have seen our Biker Rags MINI rolling down Gay Street. We were with the Smoky Mountain Mini Club and we had a BLAST! (You can find the Smoky Mountain Mini Club HERE.)

The only drawback to being in the parade was not getting photos of the parade. This post is more of a behind the scenes look at being in the parade. If you’d like to see more photos of the parade, check out these two links:

We were instructed to be at our staging area between 5pm and 6pm. So naturally we left our house at 4:30pm. (We live three whole miles from downtown. Jeff is a bit time conscious.)

Leaving for the staging area. Cute, eh?
