Holiday Stroll

The lights in Central Park

Tonight was another Christmas celebration downtown: Holiday Stroll. The High School Dance Team (Starsteppers), Drill Team (Rising Stars) and the Wee Steppers (elementary students who are learning dance routines each week from the Starsteppers) performed dances in the street for the city. The dance team splits up each week and go to most of the area elementary schools to teach dances and techniques to the Wee Steppers. One of those Wee Steppers is our friends' daughter Maggie.

We watched the performances then Marty, Heather and I took a carriage ride. It was a beautiful evening and not cold at all. After our ride we strolled around downtown looking at the lights and just enjoying the evening. We stopped at the coffee shop for coffee and hot chocolate. Thank you Marty and Heather for such and enjoyable evening!

Katie's wish came true. She saw Santa Clause.
