But the kids along the parade route didn't mind the cold... they were well bundled up and eagerly looking forward to seeing Santa!
The parade started at 2:00 pm at the far end of Main Street. By the time the floats got to my end of town around 3:00 pm, the participants were looking decidedly chilly.
.... and the Shriners. Usually if there's a band approaching in a parade, they play until they get close to me, then the tune ends, they march in silence past me, and then start to play again once they are safely past!
Not this time! The Uxbridge Pipe Band played a rousing rendition of "Jingle Bells" right in front of me!
I bet their knees were cold.
More of the Parade tomorrow.
