Santa’s Here!

Santa and dozens of other floats paraded down Main Street today, braving the gray and threatening weather. The heavy rain fortunately held off. The long parade ended up at the City of Gloucester's Christmas tree at Kent Circle, near the Fisherman at the Wheel statue. This year's tree is lit with LED lights, which I think is the way to go. Economical to run, and resistant to vibration and breakage.
