I didn't get to see the parade in person, but my grand-dtrs did. Along with the regular floats and of course, Santa himself, were about 30 Big Rigs from the Truckers Association, in the parade. They dolled themselves up with hundreds of lights to make a spectacular sight. Some actually made themed floats on the deck of their flatbeds. Quite impressive from what we saw on TV, but I am sure it was much more exciting in person. I'll have to get a playback from my girls. They love parades. I do too. Guess there is still some kid in me yet.
