Shatners On Parade!

via boingboing

Via the BB Submitterator, Boing Boing reader "That Neil Guy" says,

"The University of South Carolina has posted rare black and white, silent footage of a 1968 Christmas parade in Columbia, SC. Along with the requisite marching bands and visit from Santa, we're also treated to William Shatner in full Captain Kirk regalia. It's a weird little time machine moment. Oh, and, by the way, the very day of the parade saw the premiere of the original series episode
Wink of an Eye."
