I always thought that parades were kind of lame, except maybe for military ones. However, the Washington D.C. Cherry Blossom Parade had plenty to offer as you can see from this video. This brand new 2011MY Dodge Durango Citadel was sitting right in the middle of the parade route when all of the sudden it started to burst into flames (literally) from its hood. An NBC affiliate said that the car started to spew black smoke while towing on the parade route.
Due to this incident, the parade was prolonged by approximately 15 minutes, but just like in Titanic, the band kept playing all the way throughout the tragedy – that’s what I call professionalism.
