Parade of Lights
December 13, 2010
During the holiday Season, many towns and cities close down the main street and host a parade of lights! Attributing the holiday season, a Parade of Lights is nothing more than a parade, filled with lights in every form a light can come in. Its a great spectacle to look at and a lot of fun to attend and the very own town of Steamboat hosted it’s own parade of lights last night on December 11th. for a few hours, downtown Lincoln Street was closed to traffic to host this fun and festive gathering.
All throughout downtown there were lights, people, and hot coco by the masses. All the restaurants down mainstreet were having awesome dinner specials and deals on hot drinks to keep the insides warm during the cold evening. The event started off with a parade obviously filled with lights and all the locals of the town. After the parade, there were side street attractions for everyone to enjoy.
As I was walking down the street, I noticed something familiar that caught my eye because of the fire spinning around in the air. In the middle of 7th street was a group of fire dancers performing a show for the crowd… Being a pyro myself, I was super excited to see the fire performers downtown. There was poi, fire breathing, fire staffing and fire wicking going on which was super awesome to watch.
Another fun attraction downtown were the kid carolers. They bundled together in the cold and sang Christmas carols to the crowd passing by. It set the Christmas vibe quite nicely. All in all, the parade of lights in Steamboat Springs was a lot of fun. Minus the cold, I had a great time. I have a feeling it’s going to be a white holiday season this year!
