Local favorite, Donnie Barrett was honored at the 2013 Christmas Parade
for receiving the Quality of Life Award. Donnie is the Director of the
Fairhope Museum of History, a "must see" attraction in town.
Mayor Tim Kant, along with wife Karla had fun waving to the crowd.
The Fairhope City Council, along with family members, took their traditional ride on the old city fire engine. Reports were the ride was much like council meetings - often bumpy, but memorable.
The 200 member Fairhope High School Band sounded great playing
Christmas music for the crowd.
This handsome guy happens to be my favorite Drum Major!
A convertible Winnebago with a giant nativity scene on top was a crowd favorite.
(I never thought I would write that sentence)
Everyone loves these adorable dancing Christmas girls!
"Peggy the Elf" was the happiest helper of all this year!
As with all parades in Fairhope, the streets were covered with candy and beads.
And this is just what was left over!
I hid (what was left of) my stash in the butter dish. So far, no one has found it.
If they were good little kids and read Mom's blog, they would find a treat!
As always, the City Workers were on top of things, sweeping the streets clean to be ready for more fun the next day.
