Rose parade?... Or any parade?

I've never understood the love of parades and floats. I've always watched them a little bit but out of feeling like I should as an Americsn tradition. But I don't get it?? Maybe on tv it's hard to see the beauty and detail??
Someone please explain the love of parades to me!!!!

    We love parades. Just gives us something fun to do as a family. Plus they kids love the candy :)
