Yesterday the town held its annual Golf Cart Holiday parade to benefit the Port Aransas EMS Toy Roundup. I tried to get to the front of the line to snap photos as the parade wound its way through town. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get there so had to be satisfied with taking some shots of some of the entries after the finish. The idea for the parade is to dress up your golf cart (yes there is judging) and join in the fun. An unwrapped toy is the entry fee.
These carts do not look like your typical golf course variety. The suspension is built up and tires supersized so that maneuvering in the sand is not a problem.
Here are some of the entries.
The first is a riff on a boat
This one looks like it was painted for the holiday
This one came with an elf
Tons of presents ( and back side of the elf)
Looks like this one hit a doll. You can see it on the windshield. (another Elf and Santa helper)
Here is a cart that has all-weather side curtains. Must be from Minnesota.
Here is a cute riff on Hula skirt. Cute little reindeer too!
Now this Land Rover was a nice addition. Came all the way from Australia (kidding)
The sign reads “Random Acts of Friends” which pretty well sums up the spirit of Port Aransas
Now that is a strange golf cart. Yes, the police took part as well as the firefighters.
I hope you enjoyed the tour.
