2013 Rex Procession
“All Creatures Great and Small”
The 2013 Parade Theme, "All Creatures Great and Small," is taken from the first lines of a beloved Anglican hymn: "All things bright and beautiful/All creatures great and small.." Creatures "real and imaginary, massive and tiny" make up the colorful Rex Carnival menagerie. The hymn was first published in C.F. Alexander's "Hymns for Little Children" in 1848.
