Xmas on the Lahave

.
Christmas has arrived in Lunenburg County. I spent the afternoon wandering Lunenburg taking in the Xmas craft fair and the other good things that beautiful little town has to offer. Then this evening, it was off to "Christmas on the LaHave".
.

In spite of our warm temperatures lately, it cooled off considerably when the sun went down. Molly and I met with friends downtown and warmed ourselves with cheesie popcorn and delicious apple cider while waiting for the Xmas parade. There were several musical guests to entertain us as we waited, and our singing and dancing helped us stay somewhat warm..
The parade finally made its way to us shortly after 6 pm. There were over 40 floats with Santa, of course, ending the parade and then getting off his float to mix and mingle with the little ones.Also included in the parade were the Fireman's Band, a group of gorgeous little tappers all dressed in white, a couple of local hockey teams, and more dressed and decorated doggies than I've ever seen. It was such fun!
The finale were fireworks over the bridge.
.
Ahhh! Warm again, here at home in my jammies; and soon to be huddled under a blankie on the sofa waiting for "Once Upon A Time" to air.

.
A fine end to a fine weekend; and a lovely official start to my Christmas season!

What a fun weekend you had! A great way to start off the season. I haven't seen a Santa Claus parade in 20 years I'm sure. Have you started decorating yet? Have a great week. Pamela
