Town Square

Santa Claus comes to town in Main Street parade at 5:30 tonight

Original post made on Dec 7, 2008

The popular Balloon Platoon, car clubs, dog clubs, the City Council, the mayor and Congressman Jerry McNerney and finally Santa Claus will be among those who will stroll or ride down Main Street late this afternoon in the annual Hometown Holidays Celebration. That event starts at 5:30 p.m. and will be followed immediately by the lighting of the Christmas tree in front of the Museum On Main.

Is there some reason why the mayor's head is on McGovern's body? I was trying to figure out why the picture looked so odd when I looked at the pictures I took last night and realized that the mayor was sitting next to Cook-Kallio and Sullivan and Thorne was sitting next to McGovern!

Maybe they switched seats. When I saw the carriage go by (further down the street), McGovern was indeed sitting where Hosterman is in the photo, but wasn't she wearing a white or cream-colored scarf and a bulkier red coat?

If you look at the caption it is last year's picture. It was published prior to last night's parade.

And of course everyone loved the bikers doing there tricks, and don't forget they jumped over someone!
