LoveFM’s 6th Annual San Pedro Christmas Parade Keeps Getting Better
Last night was the big lighted Christmas LAND parade through downtown San Pedro. The lighted BOAT parade is next week on Saturday. I used to consider this one the new kid on the block but radio station has done such an amazing job…and this parade just keeps getting bigger and better. This year was the longest, most well attended by dressed up children and threw out the most candy. Consider me the official Guinness book official of Ambergris Caye.
The parade officially started at 5:30pm…and I was there a bit early. Man…what a pretty night. Big bright moon, pinkish purple clouds threatening for a bit but just a tiny spritz.
