Soon as thanksgiving and blackfriday are out of the way in the US, attention turns towards Christmas. In Siesta Key that meant a Christmas parade.
All the local services (fire engines, ambulances police/sheriff and lifeguards), clubs (karate, scouts....) and businesses (hot air balloon, shops, restaurants, estate agents, etc...)arranged a float. It gives you a little snapshot into the local area.
Really pleasant to enjoy a Christmas parade without shivering, it was in the mid twenties.
Kids quickly figured out that the more they cheered the more treats and gifts they got given.
They cheered a LOT!!
One thing's for sure, Americans know how to make a parade a festive occasion!
Make that Christmas a festive and colourful occasion.
Just a regular front lawn at this time of year...
