Frosty Christmas Parade

Some highlights of our Christmas parade this weekend...it started as all of our parades begin, with the VFW leading the way and then the usual characters followed. They were making all of us laugh. The theme this year was Frosty the Snowman and it was certainly a frosty day, but we also had some beautiful blue skies to enjoy this year's Christmas parade.

This was the cutest little "gift" being pulled in her wagon...by a Christmas elf!

There was a "bag lady" walking around, handing out big grocery bags with coupons!

My parents riding in their 1950 Chevy, all decorated for the parade.

The boy scouts braving the cold.

My nephew with the boy scouts...he has on some Illini earmuffs!


  1. That's what I call a parade..I do miss seeing them in Long Island, N.Y..small town I lived in..Always a fun time for everyone. What a nice time and like the car..Gosh, I felt a little old..I almost think I remember that year..even if I was only 10..Oh my, time is moving on..haha..Have a great week..xoxoRosebud.

  2. Very nice. It looks like a great day for the parade. What day is your mom's birthday this Dec?

  3. This reminds me of the local small town parade in North Newton, Kansas

  4. Good pics!! We missed out on Mattoon's parade, so we'll be going to Charleston this weekend for the parade, carriage rides, live reindeer, refreshments, live window displays, entertainment & photos with Santa. I think the boys will enjoy it! :)

  5. What fun! Thanks for sharing these delightful photos.

    Have a great day.
