Holiday Parades

It's a time honored Christmas tradition, getting up early and scoping out the perfect location for your lawn chairs, then breaking out the hot chocolate and blankets as we watch beautifully decorated floats and chilly marching bands and wait for a glimpse of Santa in his sleigh! Find your nearest parade. Plus we'll be filming a few select parades and posting the videos.
