Santa Is Here
For many years, we didn’t pay attention to the arrival of Santa downtown even though we live within a stones throw of the parade route. Our daughter would spend Thanksgiving weekend with my in-laws for a long time so we had no real need.
Then they added the bicycle decorating contest, and we’re regulars now. I walked with her for a couple of years and now take part with the Lions Club.
The growth of the parade has been fantastic to watch. It kind of mirrors the growth downtown. I saw a bunch of people I knew along the route and then walked around downtown a little bit before heading home (but not until I got a coffee at Reader’s Cafe).
I plan on spending more time downtown this weekend to check out the Christmas Tree Wars trees. What a great idea. Here are some parade photos.
