When we decided to watch the Christmas parade, I had no idea it was going to be as cold as it is tonight...especially when yesterday was so warm!!! Despite the cold, most of us enjoyed the parade and lighting ceremony in Central Park afterward.
I almost didn't drag out my tripod for the parade because what a hassle it is, especially in such a crowd of people. But, I'm sure glad I did because as cold as I got and as much as I was shivering there is no way I could have held the camera still and you'd all be getting dizzy looking at very blurry, fuzzy photos!
There were several cool floats all lit up for the occasion.
The Starsteppers. Heather was marching with the band and I never did even see her among all those kids!
This was my favorite float. The carousel was actually spinning! It was very cool!!!
What parade in Texas would be complete without all the horses??? These horsewomen rode in wings and halos.
At the very end of the parade, Santa and Mrs. Claus waved to everyone from the back of a fire truck.
After the parade was the traditional lighting of Central Park after the mayor's countdown. It's always so beautiful to see Central Park at Christmas!
