WINSLOW’S 75th ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARADE

WINSLOW’S 70th ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARADE

Parade quest started at 3am. Staging for the big event was a few blocks west and our driveway is about 50′ from the route and it seems we’re the official Porta-Potty location during major downtown events.

On arrival I was about fifty yards and a zillion people behind the truck setting the final barricades, vendors blocked any path to the Motor Palace, and the Porta Potties had claimed the driveway. The stove and prep sink would stay in the pickup ’til the parade passed.

More important, I would finally see Winslow’s renowned Christmas Parade. Excitement and enthusiasm filled the air.

The tribune News says,The parade provides residents and guests from all around the state a joyful holiday experience. What began in 1946 as an event that would kick off the holiday season and encourage citizens to shop local now brings in crowds of up to 20,000, making Winslow’s Christmas parade the largest and longest running in all of northern Arizona.
