Santa Came to Town....

....on top of the firetruck!
Our town's annual Christmas parade took place on Saturday and of course I had to take some pictures.

                                Parade Begins!
          Osiris Hillbilly Clan- Hillbilly to the Core!
                   Our local Jr. High School Band
Followed by the Marching Monarchs of John      Marshall High School
               My favorites ~ Horses....of course!
                              and then these.
I think there were a total of 9 or 10 tractors on display this year.
This poor dog!
I really hope that it was a SHE because if not, then that poor thing surely has no pride left after marching in pink booties and feathers.

The parade lasted about an hour and ended with who else but Santa riding on the firetruck!
Which brings me to this question.
How does Santa arrive in your town before Christmas?
Does he come by horseback, firetruck, helicopter or what?

What fun! You're playing my favorite Christmas song. This year I'm favoring the Judy Garland version.

That pittbull in pink booties takes the cake! I'm not sure how/if santa comes to our town, but I do know he sits in the mall for all the children to sit on his lap, I also remember my son being *afraid* of him when he was 2 or 3, LOL!!!!
