You know that scene where Arnold Schwarzenegger chases the guy through the crowd attending a parade in the freezing cold snow in Jingle All the Way.
You may have laughed at this parade. Who has a parade in the snow? Who, in reality will be outside in -20 degree weather. You may have dismissed this to a back recess of your brain in the thoughts you'd never use this information about the parade, or the wonderment over the idea of being outside at -20.
That parade is actually a reality. And it's not just once a year. Its for a few weeks. Every night. People volunteer to be in this thing. And come watch it in droves!
Some people were thrilled by this opportunity. Giddy might be the word. Though, neither kid had ever, ever been to the Holidazzle except as babies that ill fated frozen night 10 years ago. Mainly because no one would take them. We weren't that dumb to go again.

Obviously, them being in it meant a family night downtown, and a parade viewing party.
|I loved this church!|
|People in lighted costumes waiting for the parade to start|
|I love the dancing lights!|
|Every parade ends with Santa|
|Or a street sweeper rather|
|Especially finding Michael Jackson memorabilia there!|
