A Happy Christmas Parade to All, and to All a Good Day!

Despite predictions of rain for Saturday's Christmas festivities, the weather was dry and warm enough so that only a light jacket was needed. That was a good thing, since this year's Christmas parade was splendidly filled with entries including strollers through antique fire trucks. 

Several school bands participated, as did dancers and cloggers and tumblers, oh, my! Although Basis School just started in August, they even managed to pull together a marching band to follow the parade route.

Of course, it wouldn't be a parade in Prescott without a few critters. Although this years Rodeo Royalty rode atop a float in style, there were still some adorable Shetland ponies and miniature horses to delight the crowd. Scottie dogs trotted along on their short little legs, while greyhounds strolled nonchalantly with elegance. How do they get their dogs to dress up like that?

Motorized vehicles tooted and rumbled along (note to parade organizers: next time please don't put noisy motorcycles near school bands), showcasing antique cars, VW bugs and fire engines all decorated with holiday trim. 

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Christmas Parade without a Santa surrounded by elves and helpers. This year’s Santa had the final entry in the parade, waving and smiling at all who had come to remember old memories and make new ones. 

According to the sponsor of the parade, the Prescott Chamber of Commerce, the Parade winners were:  4th place - Maricopa Cloggers, 3rd place - Sacred Heart Catholic Parish, 2nd place - Summer's Danceworks and 1st place - Prescott Regulators and Their Shady Ladies.
