Holidazzle Freezing Cold Fun!

The Holidazzle Parade is an outdoor, evening Christmas Parade that takes place every year in downtown Minneapolis. Only in Minnesota would people stand outside in freezing cold weather to watch a parade at night! But, we do, and we love it! We planned on going to Macy's before the parade to see their nutcracker display, but the line was over a hour long so instead we went and staked out our spots outside Barnes and Noble. Armed with extra blankets, lawn chairs and hot cocoa we claimed a spot on the curb and waited for the parade to begin. The photos are really fun as some are clear (auto focus no flash) and some are not (night time setting, no flash). I actually like the blurry ones the best as it gives a great feel for the parade. Calvin thought it was about the coolest thing he had ever seen and he was practically jumping off my lap trying to see the next float!
