An Evening of Joy and Fun

The 2012 Lights On Celebration Parade was last Saturday (November 24). It was a perfect evening—just enough crispness and bite in the air to think yep, the holiday season is upon us. Thank you, Hollister Downtown Association, for another wonderful job planning, organizing, and making the parade happen for us all.

My most favorite parts in the parade were the kiddies pumping away on their tricycles decorated with lights. It made me wish I was just as young as them so I could pedal a tricycle along the parade route. I thought one of the coolest-of-cool floats was Save Mart's entry—a gigantic shopping cart. What was your favorite float or part of the parade?

Maybe next year, the Husband and I will think about getting down there early enough to put up some chairs. We drove down San Benito Street earlier in the day and saw chairs set up along the curb all the way down to Hawkins Street.

And, maybe next year, I'll have a camera that can take clean, crisp photos at night.  I've put together an album at the Take 25 to Hollister Facebook page of my better shots of the parade. Here's the link. Enjoy.
