The Parade



Because of my husband's job running "Super Great Doll Place", we get to ride in the Festival Of Lights Parade every year. Mickey Mouse rides on the first float and waves a magic wand to light the trees on Michigan Avenue. The big parade was yesterday, and we had the pleasure of riding with brand new Disney characters Bolt and Mittens. This beautiful spectacle is capped off with a fireworks display over the Chicago River. It is quite extraordinary to see the reflections of the fireworks in the high rise windows. It is pretty darn cool.

Wow! I didn't know your husband did that. Do you have the parade wave perfected yet?

How fun! We are envious. What was the weather like? Bolt and Mittens look adorable, we are hoping to see the show over the weekend.

Two more weeks, Linda!!
