Hi Nina - the holiday boat parade would be something to see.  A few of those parades happen in Florida.

I agree- who doesn't love a holiday parade? (Unless of course it happens to be below 30 with bitter cold winds)

Nina, you have won me over a long time ago, but now enough I will make visiting Charlotte a priority, not part of a wish list.  Thank you.  Mark

Hi Nina- I love parades and I know that everyone in your area will love knowing where they can find one in the Charlotte area.  This is one of the times I really miss Delray Beach and the Christmas boat parades.

George Souto I'm with you on not loving to stand in the cold to watch a parade... fortunately it's not that cold in Charlotte. We think it's cold when it's 50 degrees! :)

I love a good parade Nina Hollander, Broker . When I lived in a small town they had a parade for everything. It was fun and a good spirit booster for the community.

Nina Hollander, Broker - I always wondered how they electrified personal cars during the holidays. Now I know! Although I am not going to do it for my car, I admire those that do. Parades are so much fun to watch but crowds are something I avoid.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP hi Patricia... I'm not big on crowds either, but having grown up in New York City watching many big parades I admit I'm a bit of a sucker for them.
