Christmas Parade 2012, part 2

More pics, this time at the end of the Parade.  Our friends have an apt. overlooking the Parade route, so these are taken from 2 stories up, looking down...

It was mid/late afternoon, and you can see some kids were all tuckered out at this point. 

Long, long day for them, especially the little ones.
Even Santa decided to take a break and check out the latest fashion magazine.

The gal on the left is holding a little (live and probably terrified) lamb.

The official Traveling Christ Child brings up the end of the Parade route.  It's a fascinating story of how the Parade came to be, definitely a major piece of history for our City. This statue of the Baby Jesus was taken to Rome to be blessed by the Pope in the 1960's.

Military, and some of their family members, escorted the special float with the Traveling Christ Child.

The Grand Finale, with the special, blessed by the Pope, Traveling Baby Jesus!

We hope all of our readers have also had a wonderful, fun and joyful Christmas Season.
A Very Happy New Year to All!
