CHRISTMAS PARADE TONIGHT at 6pm! With the main stage/viewing stand, TV cameras and all, across the street from of DECOPOLIS! There are several rows of bleachers in front of DECOPOLIS as well for your parade viewing convenience.

We will be having free snacks and hot cocoa along with live music, by Joseph Glaude on solo guitar.

We will also be hosting a Book-signing by local author Ann Patton starting at 5pm for her newest book "THE TULSA RIVER"! Ann's informative and insightful book highlights the many stories of the river that is so much a part of our cities history and heritage. This book is sure to also inspire discussion about it's future and with that in mind, special guests attending the book signing will be former Mayor Roger Randal and Metropolitan Environmental Trust director Michael Patton

Aaaand don't forget anyone coming in today from 11am-9pm wearing their best "Ugly Sweater" will receive their flavor choice of an old fashioned, Hammonds Candy Cane, for Free!

Lots of fun stuff going on in the Deco District that night, along with the other Deco District Shops being open late as well, so be sure to drop by!

I spent the parade hanging out at the artist store. It is a great location to see the parade. His shop was right across form the TV station broadcasting the parade so each float/band/group did there best performance right there.

On the down side, I spent way too much money in his shop. It has a great selection of gifts and books. I got some slides whistles, wild candy canes, and kids toys for under $4 each. I can't wait to give my wife the book on snarky quotes and I bought a really nice teapot for the home.

Key word: "CHRISTMAS" -- It's not a "holiday parade" or a "parade of lights" those kind of parades can be done anytime of the year. It's Christmas!! Smiley

Based on your logic the only day you can have a "Christmas" parade is on December 25th. Christmas is a day, not six weeks.

New Year's parades are only on January 1st. The Thanksgiving parades are only on Thanksgiving Day. The Martin Luther Day parade is on Martin Luther King Day. The Veterans Day parade is on Veteran's day.

Why should all parades in December be forced to have the word Christmas in their name?

I think Christmas has an inferiority complex.

Sometimes that happens when you take other people's smile and call it yours even though they saw you take it.

Ignore the jackass.  He'll destroy the thread if you allow it.

Does anyone have any pics of the parade?

New Year's parades are only on January 1st.

Not for procrastinators.  They have theirs on the 2nd.

I watched most of the "Christmas" parade on channel 8 and the main camera was showing the large gathering of people in front of some store front called "Decopolis" I thought, Hmm that sounds familiar.  Grin
