Last night was the annual Christmas parade for downtown Naples. Despite a little rain right before it started the event was a huge success. Thousands of people started gathering around the parade rout at 3:00. The parade never disapoints and this year was one of the best ever. If you have never attended, it is the quintasential small town parade filled with school marching bands and local business floats tossing candy. The parade lasted a few hours and left everyone who attended with holiday cheer.
