Sunday in My City: Santa Parade

Unknown Mami


We are traveling the world together with the Unknown Mami. I am joining you from Middletown, Ohio, just north of Cincinnati.


Well, Thanksgiving is over! Last night there was a Santa Parade downtown, welcoming the Christmas season. Of course we toted the kids down there so watch. It was longer than I expected (an hour), and a strange time for a parade- it didn't start until 5pm, and it starts getting dark around 4:30!  Here are some of the shots that turned out:


Some sort of Snow Queen.



One of several fire trucks.



Various characters. My kids liked the Gingerbread Man.



Little cutie-pie dancers. Morgan and Viv were dancing along!



This was a pretty elaborate gingerbread house, complete with Kermit, Elmo, and Cookie Monster.



Lots of the parade "floats" were large inflatables on top of cars.



Had a great time!

  7. I haven't been to a parade for a while. One of my daughter's was in marching band and so she was performing at each parade our town had. Winter parades are cold and summer parades, well they're hot LOL.
