Lake Charles Christmas Parade

Louisianians love parades. I guess it’s the Mardi Gras in us. Lake Charles hosted its annual Christmas parade this afternoon. Sam Houston High’s Pride and Spirit Marching Band entertained the throngs lining Lakeshore Drive and Bilbo Street

I’m partial to the tenor sax player second from the left.

Where else but in Louisiana would Santa’s “sleigh” be pulled by ‘gators?

Even dogs enjoy parades in Louisiana.

How does your community celebrate the season?

I thought I commented already, but I guess I didn't!

It looks like a fun parade. Those band gloves are fancy, eh? Love the gators pulling the sleigh. I mean, flying gators make just as much sense as flying reindeer.
