Lots of local businesses and organizations participated in the parade and it was great to see all the wonderful floats and costumes everyone had designed.  The theme of this year’s parade was “I’ll Be Home for Christmas – Parade of the Wooden Soldiers”.  Ashley Anderson, special events coordinator for the DJDC said, “With 2011 being the 10 year anniversary for 9/11, DJDC thought it would be a great time to honor all Military persons past and present.”
