It was nearly all uphill and moved double the speed of a regular parade. My job was to "walk" beside the float handing out candycanes. (It is against the rules to throw candy from the float.) I remained two floats behind during the whole parade because it was uphill and double time. Did I mention that I kept getting hit by the candy being thrown from the float two spaces behind ours? Despite all that, I was happy to be a representative of the real reason for Christmas!
This year we chose to be spectators again! Bob and Debbie joined us down town for the fun! After getting dinner at Pizza Inn, we parked closer to main street and staked out our place.
