Christmas Parade and Light Up

Tonight was High Prairie’s annual Christmas Parade and Light Up! I drove onto the main street with my 91 year old lady friend and we watched the parade together. Well actually, she stayed in the car while I hopped out into the biting cold to take pictures. Please excuse the blurriness, I was walking while taking some pictures.

The whole town was there and I even ran into several students! After the Light Up, everyone went to the recreation centre for hot chocolate and cookies.

What a way to welcome in the Christmas season!
