Hutchinson Kansas Holiday Parade 2008

They are for the most part the faces of people I do not know, but they are my fellow townspeople. With little comment, here are some photos of the Hutchinson Kansas Holiday Parade on November 22, 2008.

A little girl waves at Santa as his carriage rounds the corner of Avenue B onto Main Street.

Hutchinson antique dealer and building restorer Lloyd Armstrong photographs the parade.

The controversial Wiley building sees another parade.

I ran into uber-Yule Christmas maven Patsy Terrell.

Ace managed to connect with Rocko (nicknamed "Baracko" of late) and his non-canine assistant, Trish Rose.

One spectator sacked out in the street.

A vintage Santa watches from Yesterday's Treasures Antiques. His face, spun glass beard and hand reveal him to be a product of the defunct Harold Gale display Company of Kansas City.

Here's our coverage of the parade in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
