We went to the Radford Christmas parade the first weekend in December.
Radford has a nice little Christmas parade through the downtown beside the river and train tracks. It's a small parade, with high school bands, the boy and girl scouts, old cars, and fire trucks.
The dogs wear costumes.
The floats are by local businesses and churches.
Farmers drive their tractors.
Lots and lots of tractors. If my dad ever moves over to this part of the state I'm going to make him drive his John Deere in the Christmas parade.
There was a monster truck from the nearby Volvo plant in Dublin.
There were horses and riders.
And finally there was Santa.
Santa always seems to arrive on a fire truck around here.
And everyone passed out candy canes and suckers, which of course made Ally very happy.
