Dress for the occasion. Warm socks. Warm boots. Two shirts. Long sleeves. Hat. Gloves. Snow pants. Warm coat over windbreaker over sweatshirt over previously mentioned shirts.
We also like to have a small campfire to stand by. The parade route goes by one of our houses and every year our families get together to cheer on the parade. The parade people have noticed. We all cheer back and forth.
After the parade is over, we gather in a heated garage with a potluck of different snack foods.
Chili. Roll ups. Pickles. Chips. Cheese sauce. Pickled quail eggs.
Yes. It's fun.
