    Barry, your weather was just a little cooler than it was here, we had a sunny day in the low 50s F, a nice night for the Chicago Magnificent Mile lighting tonight. Sure sign that the holidays are on the way- Barry has posted parade pictures!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    #91-Snowflakes,#92-Beyond the Sun,#93-Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Bowmanville,#94-Mecko and friends,#95-Cobourg Concert Band,#96-#98-Santa Claus,#99-St.John Ambulance.The parade was a little shorter this year at 45 entries,down from 61 last,there is $500 entry fee for entering,have to have a certificate of insurance,the parade being a community event and no advertising,that's why our hockey team the Clarington Eagles can't be in it,uniforms are considered advertising yet all the bands wear uniforms and the Sea and Air Cadets wear uniforms,in the Oshawa parade Saturday night their team the Generals wore their uniform tops,the Central Public School band wasn't in it due to a government /teacher thing,teachers withholding services,this was one of then yet the Bowmanville High School Band was in the parade.

    Parade Button


    Button for this year's Parade,helps pay for putting it on plus the $500 entry fee per float which I think is a little steep.
