Who needs a reason for a parade? Not the dozens of San Marcos residents who turned out Saturday — many in elaborate costumes — for the 39th annual Just for Fun parade. Golf carts, riding lawnmower and flatbed trailers carried some of the participants while many more were on foot or bicycle. After forming up at Children’s Park, the parade went down Hopkins Street and then back along Hutchison Street, where some were waving to people along the route. DAILY RECORD PHOTOS BY DENISE CATHEY

Emet Skiles was being pushed by his mother Amy in a stroller that generates bubbles. As is true of many annual events, those at Saturday’s parade were already planning for next year, the 40th annual Just For Fun.

The Callous Taoboys (Slimtex Jennings, Bud the Reverend, Bozo the Bassman and Curly Hall) are perennial Just for Fun performers.

A Ninja Turtle on a riding lawnmower made an appearance at the parade.

Golf carts were another popular form of transportation, all in fun, of course. City Council member Melissa Derrick is riding in this one.
