Holiday Starlight Parade - Downtown Redmond, Oregon (LOCALISM FEATURED)

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Desert Sky Real Estate, LLC 200201121

Thanksgiving has barely passed and we just couldn't wait to usher in the Christmas Season!

What better way than Redmond's annual Holiday Starlight Parade!  The parade, held in Downtown Redmond, Oregon, starts at dusk and is filled with beautifully lit entries of all shapes and sizes.  Even the horses had twinkle lights!  Although I've lived in Redmond for eight years, this is my first Starlight Parade and I must say it couldn't have been a better first.  The weather was unseasonably warm with only a light jacket needed.  And just in case you got a little chilly, many local merchants had hot chocolate ready and waiting.

ParadeCars

The parade started with a string of classic cars decorated for the season.

Redcross

American Red Cross Disaster Relief

Sleigh

Mark's Auto Body - Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer

Bus

A Year of Memories - Local Elementary Students

ChristmasTree

What better way to top the evening off than the annual Tree-Lighting Ceremony, complete with carolers, candlelight, and Santa!  It was an evening filled with fun for all ages.  Just one more reason to visit our local Central Oregon area, no matter the time of year!

Thank you Debbie!

Thanks Tammy.  I don't think I've ever know anyone to not like whipped cream.  I actually have it on my coffee every morning.  Maybe just a little spoiled :~)

What great photos!  I've never been good at taking photos in the dark, although I got a good one at the Christmas tree lighting tonight.

Talking about moving fast thru the holidays.  That is pretty early for a Christmas Parade but I guess it kicks everyone in to the holiday spirit.

Good job Margaret!  I'm afraid out of all I took only a few were semi-worthy, but we work with what we have :~)

Thanks for stopping by Kristi.

Hi Terri, Thanks for the great pics! I had to make homemade hot cocoa to go w/ that (yes, mini marshmellows too!) I just had knee surgery so I don't know if I'll get to go to the Ann Arbor area parade this year. I appreciate your pics all the more.
