Parade of Lights
Location: Downtown near 16th St. Mall
December 5, 2015
So, since I have lived in Denver and have known about the Parade of Lights, I have wanted to go. The one time I planned on it, it was -9 degrees Fahrenheit. I decided frostbite wasn’t worth it.
This year the weather was magnificent. David and I decided to go downtown early for dinner and then watch the parade. We stumbled upon a Peruvian place on Champa between 15th and 17th where we found a place to park. We were surprised to find a meter, but later we realized we were between the parade route, though it wasn’t a problem.
After dinner, we wandered up to 17th and found a spot right on the corner at 6pm. We lucked out as the street was lined with spectators four people deep and we only had to stand behind one person. I suppose for a better view, getting there before the parade started would be a plus. The start of the parade was about 20 minutes from us. The floats were somewhat spread out which lengthened the parade to about an hour.
Now I can customize key chains with any photo…all you have to do is email me your favorite picture of your family, dog, or perhaps even your business logo.
