Lions Clubs International Parade of Nations Stops Traffic in Seattle

Day two of our 2011 International Convention featured many highlights, including the spectacular 94th Parade of Nations. An estimated 10,000 Lions from 100 countries ā€“ many in native dress ā€“ created a colorful display of sight and sound as they marched for more than a mile.

The Parade was lead by the Ohio State School for the Blind Marching Band. The Band, which is the only high school band in the nation made up of blind students, also participated in the 2010 Rose Parade.

See photos from the Parade of Nations in our photo Scrapbook and view more video of the Parade of Nations on YouTube.

    It was an amazing experience to be in the parade.

    How can I download the YouTube “Parade of Nations, Part 2: Lions Clubs International Convention 2011” to my computer?

    • Thanks for your comment. Wish we could be of more help with your request, but YouTube does not allow video downloads.

    It was an amazing experience to be in the parade but you don’t get to see it. So, I was wondering if there is a video of the whole parade?

    • We don’t have a video of the entire parade, but there are two more videos of the Parade of Nations in our 2011 International Convention playlist:

    Sure wish my plans to come to the convention in Seattle would have been feasible, but alas, not. So glad that we had representatives there for the rest of us Lions, from around the world! Lion Dianne M. Olleman Monrovia, Indiana

    These images made the pain of not being part of the Seattle fun irrelevant. It is great to be a Lion. I believe!
