The Lucy 100th Birthday Parade

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.

There were countless Lucy impersonators.

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!
