What a fine day it was for the 29th Georgetown Christmas Stroll. This celebration still has all the charm of a small town spontaneous parade combined with many many hours of volunteer planning making for the best Christmas Celebration in Central Texas. A huge crowd turned out filling the streets with families and strollers. There were plenty of booths of crafts to browse and lots of good eats too. My favorite is the kettle corn. and how could not stop and listen to the singing nuns? Inspirational and funny too! But the best part is the stroll itself. What started out as a casual small town event of local neighbors in Christmas costumes walking the downtown square with their pets has evolved into a major parade with floats and entries continuing for blocks. Patriotism was a popular topic this year and my favorite entry was the Cub Scouts with their soapbox derby cars. As a former CubScout pack leader I can remember the joy of corralling 30 eager CubScouts. I love the the tank.. another scout had a version complete with missles.. I wouldn't want to mess with him. and what would a small town Texas parade be without Indians???? and at the tail end of the parade is Santa.. his sleigh is pulled by a motorcycle.. you don't think we have reindeer in Texas do you?
