If you missed the Hangtown Christmas Parade this year, you missed one of the best parades this town has had in a while. I am not just saying this because I help put the parade together; I’m saying it because it’s true.
There was perfect weather and great crowds of people along the parade route. The parade had great entries, some new and lots of returning ones. With just under 100 entries from starting time of 1:00 p.m. on upper Broadway to our last entry of Santa Claus at the Belltower, it was a surprising two hours.
Job well done everyone, from the marshals and their helpers to the Mountain Democrat staff, the Placerville Police Department, Parks & Recreation Department and all the other volunteers.
I’ll see everyone next year. Happy Holidays.
