It might seem like my parents have hijacked this blog. That’s not the case; they’ve simply had a more eventful weekend than I had. Part of the 100th Birthday celebration for Lucille Ball included a parade. My Mom sent pictures.
People came from everywhere.
From Sudbury, Ontario…
And Edinburg, Texas.
They came from Sherbrooke, Quebec…
From Portland, Oregon…
And Concord, California.
Even Lucy was watching.
There were countless Lucy impersonators.
But here’s the official one.
Lucy was a style icon. The 100th birthday celebration also included a lookalike contest. Lucy’s red hair and red lipstick could be seen 900 times over. Interestingly, the majority of contestants who dressed up as Lucy wore a blue and white polka-dotted dress. That outfit is as iconic as Dorothy’s blue and white gingham dress or Marilyn’s white halter dress. Such style!
