To dream of a parade represents boasting, or showing off. A sense of vindication or pride. Noticing everyone else noticing something about you.
Negatively, may indicate a “sore winner” mentality, being pompous, or puffed up with vanity. It may also reflect your irritation or jealousy with someone else that is showing off.
Positively, dreaming of a parade may reflect a wish to show off to all your friends and family that a problem wasn’t a big deal and that you are doing great now.
To dream of the color red on floats, wagons, or parade clothing may represent bad intentions while showing off. Being mean, rubbing it in, or lying to make someone hurt more.
Example: A woman dreamed that she was getting ready for a parade. In waking life she had just recovered from a mastectomy and was getting ready to confidently her health and survival to all her friends and family while they all showered her with love celebrating her return home.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of being relieved that was over. In waking life she was getting older and relieved that her sexual attractive youth was over because she didn’t like having sex and getting pregnant.
