Christmas Parade

I won't even try to post all 123 photos of the Christmas parade. Its been many years since I have been to a Christmas parade so I really enjoyed this one and being with some of the grands made it even more special. Here are a few highlights of "Christmas in the Mountains" parade.
Granddaughter and Tisha waiting for parade to start
Here it comes!
I hope no fire alarms go off as all the firetrucks were in the parade!
There are lots more photos of floats, groups, etc but I think you get the jest of a wonderful mountain small town Christmas parade.

That was a great parade and reminds me very much of the parades where I grew up. I love your granddaughter and Tisha's photo dressed in red! I saw some pretty cars too! Your town Santa looks very genuine also. Thanks for sharing the pics.

Your photos of the Mountain Parade are lovely. I especially liked the one of the classic car and the people dressed in 19th century clothes. And isn't Santa handsome? He looks very healthy and all set for his Christmas Eve run.

Our parade was Saturday night, but the boys chose to stay home, watch Santa Buddies and play games. It was quite chilly here, so that suited me fine.

Wishing you a great week, my friend.

Looks like a fun parade and people enjoying themselves. It is strange for me to see people without winter jackets and even some in shorts!I am glad you were able to attend!

PS. Just to let you know that I sent you an email. I'm not sure if I have your correct email addy and really would like to have your mailing addy so I can send you a Christmas card.

Fabulous Christmas parade, Dorothy... Reminds me of my hometown parades --with the horses, old cars, floats, etc... I love the bands ---and of course seeing Santa...

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Peggy
Finally have time to say Hello, thanks for dropping in recently. Love the holiday decorations on your blog.
Your parade looks just as it should for a Christmas one - it has all the right ingredients, floats, children, animals, cars, and Father Christmas (Santa) oh and nice looking firemen!!
Take care
