To dream that you are watching a parade, indicates that you are being sidetracked or distracted from achieving your goals. For fear of failure, you may stop yourself from even pursuing your goals and desires. Alternatively, the parade symbolizes cycles, passage of time, or a special event in your life. Consider also the symbolism of whatever figures/animals/floats are in the parade. They may reflect a need for you to possess or control those attributes.advertise, affect, air, airing, alameda, amble, array, backpack, beaten path, beaten track, berm, betoken, bicycle path, blazon, blazon forth, boardwalk, boast, brag, brandish, bravura, breathe, bridle path, brilliancy, bring forth, bring forward, bring into view, bring out, bring to notice, caravan, catwalk, column, constitutional, cosmorama, cyclorama, dangle, daring, dash, declare, defile, demonstrate, demonstration, develop, diorama, disclose, display, disport, divulge, dramatics, dramatize, dress parade, eclat, emblazon, embody, enact, entourage, esplanade, etalage, evidence, evince, exhibit, exhibition, exhibitionism, expose, expose to view, exposition, express, false front, fanfare, fanfaronade, fastwalk, figure, file off, flair, flash, flaunt, flaunting, flourish, flyover, foot pavement, footpath, footslog, footway, forced march, funeral, garden path, gasconade, georama, give sign, give token, go on parade, goose-step, groove, highlight, hike, hiking trail, histrionics, hold up, illuminate, incarnate, indicate, jaunt, light show, line, make clear, make plain, mall, manifest, manifestation, march past, materialize, mean, motorcade, mule train, mush, myriorama, pack train, pageantry, panoply, panorama, pass in review, path, pathway, perambulate, perform, peripatetic journey, peripateticism, phantasmagoria, pomp, prado, present, presentation, proclaim, produce, promenade, psychedelic show, public walk, publish, put forth, put forward, ramble, represent, representation, reveal, roll out, run, runway, rut, saunter, schlep, set forth, sham, shifting scene, shine, show, show forth, show off, showing-off, sidewalk, sight, skimmington, spectacle, splash, splurge, sport, spotlight, stage show, staginess, stream, stretch, stretch the legs, string, stroll, strut, tableau, tableau vivant, take a stretch, take a walk, theatrics, token, towing path, towpath, track, trail, traipse, tramp, trot out, trottoir, trudge, trumpet, trumpet forth, turn, unfold, vaunt, walk, walking tour, walkway, wave
