Both are Great Events, I've been going to and/or participated in both for many years. The hour long Christmas Music and Dance Show before they light the Tree is reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell painting of a small town gathering. They usually have a big bonfire and several of the churches serve Hot Chocolate, Cookies and one usually serves a great Brunswick Stew. The Parade is relatively small but wonderful. I'll see you all there tonight. If anybody is interested I'll be playing with Just Playing Dixieland at the Duck Yuletide Festival and Tree Lighting Tomorrow, the 7th at 3 PM.
