Every year the annual Parade of Lights in downtown Lodi draws a very large crowd all through the streets. Chairs are lined up for several blocks and many are placed along the sidewalks hours in advance and some even the night before.
There are many floats, trailers, tractors, cars, trucks, etc., all decorated and lit up with lights from many schools, organizations, and businesses.
This year I was honored to have a table & chairs reserved for my guests, and my son and I out in front of The Rusted Mic Entertainment House & Bistro.
It was very cold out last Thursday night during the parade, but there was hot chocolate and lattes flowing to keep us warm.
For those of us that were brave (or crazy) enough to venture out to watch the parade in person, it was definitely a great show. But if you had other plans, or just decided to stay inside where it was warm and cozy, well here are some photos that I took of some of the floats and participants and I hope you enjoy viewing them…
