Muleshoe had their annual Christmas parade and the Heritage Center had their annual Christmas open house on December 1st. I wanted to share those events with you even though I am little behind, twelve days to be exact, but who’s counting? No one, I hope! But Christmas parades are always a nice way to start off the season, and it is never too late to enjoy all things Christmas.
Gilrobert Rennels from Gil Lamb Advertising/Channel 6 was there to film the parade for broadcast on their website at www.gillambadvertisingmuleshoe.com . Gilrobert can always be depended on to film local events for broadcast, and I think his efforts are mostly taken for granted, so it is only fair to give him credit and thanks before the parade even begins. Now let me share some of the highlights with you.
To me a parade is not a parade without horses. We had a few this year, and I was glad to see them. In the old days we would have several riding clubs and many individuals riding; not so much the last few years. Why is that?
The parade was at 2:00 in the afternoon; the Heritage Center’s open house was held in the evening to take advantage of the dark to show off the lighting the SCAC kids and several Heritage Foundation members put up for the holidays. Decorations also graced the inside of the buildings, but for some reason I didn’t take any pictures of them, probably because the outside lights were so impressive this year.
The parade and the open house made it official- Christmas is on. Are you ready?
