Thanksgiving has come and gone and the start of the Christmas season has begun. With a nice warm 60° day we headed out for some holiday fun. We kicked off the start of the holiday season by going to watch Santa arrive by tugboat this year. It was awesome. I have to say that it's the very first time I've seen Santa arrive this way. Usually he's on top of a building or turning on the city lights but this year we opted for something close to home and different.
Following the crowd and wait to see Santa we headed to the village for dinner. They are doing a wonderful job decorating the village for Christmas. I'll have to try to get some pictures when it's all done.
After dinner it was time to head back down to downtown and the docks for a lighted boat parade. The boat parade was so much fun. The drawbridge goes up and people start cheering and whistling, boat horns blare and colored lights float on by.
