Hometown Christmas Parade

Bob and I attended Warren’s annual Christmas parade yesterday evening.  The parade route ran from the south end of Market Street, along Pennsylvania Avenue West, and disbanded north on Hickory Street.

There was a very good turnout for the parade.  Weather reports called for rain during the evening.  The “parade angels” must have been watching over us, as the rain held off until the end of the parade.  A very light rain began to fall shortly after the end of the parade.

We watched the parade at “the point”’ in front of the Heritage Fountain (Special Event #3 shown on map above).  We watched the parade with friends.

The parade began at 6:30 pm and reached our location approximately 20 minutes later.

This year’s parade was sponsored and coordinated by the Warren County Chamber of Business and Industry (WCCBI) and the Warren Times Observer.  A big thank you to both organizations, as they did an excellent job with the parade.

As soon as the parade ended the Christmas tree was lit.  The Christmas tree stood in front of the Heritage Fountain, located near from where we watched the parade.  There was no tree lighting ceremony, as was expected.  The tree lights just came on, with no fanfare.  The Christmas tree was the only night’s disappointment, not only for the lack of a tree lighting ceremony.  I, along with others who were standing around me, felt that whomever decorated the tree could have done a better job.

Our friends dispersed after the tree lighting. We returned to our car and drove home.
