Annual Holiday Parade in Wilmette IL

The annual holiday parade happened in Wilmette.

We watched the parade in front of the Wilmette Theater on Central Ave.

The usual suspects marched in the parade: Santa, the Boy Scouts, the Shriners, the Wilmette Fire Department and the Loyola Academy Marching Band. Not surprisingly, there seemed to be an abundance of fuel efficient cars in the parade.

The weather was very, very cold.

I haven't been in a parade since my high school marching band days, back in small-town Pennsylvania. (if you care to know, I played the piccolo!)

But my luck returns - I am walking with fellow Baird & Warner agents in the Wilmette Holiday Parade on Saturday, November 18. It begins at 10:30 AM, winding its way from 4th & Linden, up to Central Street, and ending up at the Village Hall. The kids can get a photo op with Santa at Village Hall.

My buddies and I will be handing out candy to all parade goers. We will be easy to spot in our bright yellow Baird & Warner yellow tee-shirts.

Be there or be Scrooge-like!
