A frigid rain doesn't dampen the holiday spirit in Phoenixville.

A cold steady ready made for less than ideal conditions for the annual Phoenixville Christmas Parade.  Santa brought holiday cheer and miles to the dozens of young Santanistas who lined three blocks of Bridge Street to see the star of the parade.

The parade stepped off with a color guard and students from Barkley Elementary School carrying the Kiwanis Club Banner. 

The parade started at the new Borough Hall and wound up at Bridge and Main Street for the lighting of the Phoenixville Christmas Tree.

That must have been a quick parade? I headed for my sisters at 1830 and I could see no evidence of a parade? Something like that would have been nice on a Sunday afternoon.

Well Babs then you should organize the next parade.

Well CG you are full of smart remarks aren't you?? Is that the best you can do? My personal opinion is that Friday night is a bad night for a parade regardless of the weather. People don't always get home from work early and I'm sure the businesses along Bridge St. do not like the NO PARKING signs that go up. NO PARKING Friday Dec 6 between 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm prime dinner hours! Business lost. Especially this year with the rain. So what would you do CG? Since you didn't offer anything positive to say.
