New Carlisle is one of those small towns where it has an everyone knows everyone kind of feel. It is also where they filmed some of the scenes for the Christmas movie Prancer. I pointed out the old manor house to my girls that was in the movie, and they were pretty excited, though it was too dark to stop for a photo.
The parade lasted about 15 minutes, but it was fun to see all of the floats lit up at night.
Santa wrapped up the parade, being led by some of New Carlisle's finest.
We did head over for the cookies and cocoa, and ended up being just 3 people shy of getting any snacks before they ran out. Talk about bum luck ;) But, the girls had a good time anyway, getting to experience their first Christmas parade!
Does your town offer any holiday parades?
