Is it just me or has Santa taken up a fitness program. Santa appeared much thinner in both the Lincolnton and Denver parades than I remember him in the past.
Wayne Howard Reporter
December weather is fickle. It can be sunny and 70° or freezing cold. Parades are scheduled well in advance and the weather can change quickly. In 2018, the Catsquare Christmas Parade got snowed out. Many parades over the years have had to march in rain.
The rain Saturday (Dec. 3rd) ended--but not until the ELBA Denver Christmas Parade was well underway.
Next weekend, Cherryville and Catsquare wlll have their parades. The weather? It's forecast to be good--but truthfully, it's too soon to tell for sure.
