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!!!!
