Christmas parade delights

Another great Anacortes Lions Christmas Parade! Collected here are a few shots of parade entries, from Santa to Salvation Army, Grinch to smiling policeman and friend. It was a great community  event. Thanks to all who participated, including a hearty audience lining the parade route on Commercial Avenue. Merry Christmas, Anacortes!

I got a big kick out of this clever effort on someone’s part to put a Christmas spin on the Wallie Funk photo display at the Anacortes Museum.
