Raleigh Christmas Parade

So today Andrew and I went with our friends James and Marianne to the Raleigh Christmas Parade
We didn't know this but Raleigh's Christmas Parade is the largest parade south of D.C
How cool :)
The parade was amazing but it was also two hours long
Its not the longest parade in the US but Andrew decided he wouldn't never venture to that one cause two hours was long enough!

Here are some of the pictures we took

  1. We went to the parade too! We were on the opposite side of the street near ABC 11, how funny! We later moved up to the State House and watched the Nutcracker balloon get stuck in the trees - they had to rip one of the lines! And YAY GO PACK!
