We were really excited to hear that the Savannah Holiday Lighting Parade was going on.  Wes and I realized that neither one of us had been to a proper parade in Savannah.  With the amount of road closures I have been a part of due to parades, I'm surprised that I haven't ever gone to at least one.  It was on Saturday night running from River Street up to Broughton so we grabbed the bikes and looked for a good spot.  I'm glad we decided to watch it on Broughton.  They have put up all of these amazing string lights over the street and Christmas trees everywhere.  Truly a winter wonderland in the south.

I took tons of pictures, mostly of Savannah's take on Christmas which is only mildly hilarious.  All of these jeeps covered in lights and presents and mud (these guys are affectionately called the Lowcountry Mud Rats); Tybee's chapter of the wonderful Parrot Heads; Armored vehicles topped with Christmas trees and a jolly chorus of children hanging out of the back. It really was a great sight to see.

We really had a great time seeing everything a Savannah parade has to offer.  There was a great turnout and everyone was in a festive mood.  I've got to say, a night like that really is a great way to get into the holiday spirit.  I'm so sorry I have taken so long to make a post; I've been busy getting ready for the holidays and I've been extremely busy being lazy lately so that could have something to do with it as well.  Anyway, hope you enjoy!
