Holiday Lights Festival

On Saturday night, a couple of my friends and I continued a few of our Christmas traditions—one of which is to head downtown for the Holiday Lights Festival. Usually, the temperature is hovering around five or ten degrees when we stroll through the park to take in the sights and sounds, but this year, it was probably close to forty degrees. So it was a beautiful night.

That didn’t stop us from visiting a nearby Starbucks to grab a cup of coffee before we hit the park. Here’s a picture of the first lights we saw after we left Starbucks:

We walked slowly and took in the lights that hang in every tree along the route. Once we got to the other side of the park, we found a group of carolers. They were a group of children and I was quite impressed by the number of songs they were able to remember. They sang most of the old standbys—including “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and a couple of songs that are probably on the ACLU no-no list—as one of my friends pointed out. Here’s a picture of the kids in action:

And we saw a several other groups of carolers and musicians. Here are a couple of pictures:

And here are a couple more pictures of what we saw:

I can’t believe that Christmas is a week from today already. I hope you are enjoying the season.
