This is the night of the 12th annual Holiday Dazzle Light Parade.
There is no way you can imagine this parade - you must come and see it....
Over 120 floats... all lit up like the 4th of July.
There are musical floats with live bands playing, marching bands, farm animals, 4 wheelers, a hot air balloon blaster, churches, organizations, scouts, costumes, community groups, businesses, and LIGHTS.... pretty much everyone in Northeast CT is here, either marching or watching.
To top off this usual miraculous welcoming in of the Christmas holiday season, this year The Last Green Valley is the grand marshal, and they are welcoming in their 20th anniversary in 2014. To celebrate, this is going to be the FIRST LITTER FREE PARADE in the world!!!
Garbage bags will be handed out and available before the parade begins, to share with your parade watching neighbors. At the end of the parade, volunteers will pick up all the bags. Outcome; 1st litter free parade in the world!
Pretty cool stuff, huh?
As one was has watched and marched (and I will be marching again this year as a volunteer of The Last Green Valley), I can tell you this is a not to miss out on event. You will be astonished and razzle dazzled!!!
20,000 people can't be wrong. That is the number of folks that show up every year to watch this parade! You should be among them if you enjoy a good time ~ family and community friendly!
