I'm not too sure what a majorette is. They seem to be a completely North American development. I suspect that originally they were modeled after the drum majors who led pipe bands and used their batons to signal group movements. Majorettes on the other hand appear to be entirely decorative, sort of martial cheer leaders. The young lady above graced last year's Victoria Day Parade - usually held on the May 24th weekend in celebration of Queen Victoria's birthday. I'll be dipping into the archives a little for the next ten days or so since I am traveling out of town for a brief vacation. I've lined up a number of current photos mixed with others that I like that got skipped over during the last year. I hope you enjoy them too.
