Another form of fun, free entertainment for the kids is a parade! Last year we went to a great local Veteran's Day parade. This year, we had a schedule conflict with that one, but last night we made it to a small Christmas parade.
Ready to go:
The marching band:
Santa arrived at the end of the parade. Unfortunately, my camera's flash is so slow that I didn't get a good picture of him.
This parade brought back memories of Denver's Parade of Lights. Our high school band used to march in that one, it was the most fun of all the parades because we got to play Christmas music and wear Christmas lights on our instruments. And it was always FREEZING outside. Unlike here in Texas, where it was 70 degrees for this Christmas parade. No complaints here.
