Yes! I saw it with my own two eyes in Richmond, Kentucky! The annual Christmas parade came right down beautifully decorated Main Street last night and it was absolutely the best one yet!
I was with a party of 5 that have moved here recently and they were amazed that there were hundreds of local Madison County residents packing the streets.
The participants in the parade handed out kettle-corn, candy, balloons and souvenirs. Everywhere you looked there was a happy face.
Included in the parade were decorated vehicles of all kinds like cement trucks, huge wreckers, floats, buses and police cars. Marching Bands were playing christmas music and children were screaming with excitement!
I couldn't believe how long it lasted but it seemed for hours! Then right at the end of it all was Santa and Mrs. Claus on the back of a fire engine.
We happily made our way down the street among the vendors selling trinkets, balloons and other fun stuff. My friends and I decided to add more to our experience by walking a few blocks to Madison Gardens. We were warmly greeted at the door by Tom & Steve (The famous owners). There's nothing like their hot wings, a few beers and fabulous live music of Stan & Zack. Being here really topped off the parade and we all throughly enjoyed the atmosphere of the Gardens.
Hours later, we realized we needed to wander back up the street to the car. It was a night were you never looked at your watch and hated for it to end.
Reluctantly, but with smiles on our faces we headed home.
