IL - Rantoul Festival of Lights Christmas Parade

Postby Runnin'6712 » Mon Dec 12, 2011 11:57 am

Last Friday night Ryan Summers and I were part of the Rantoul, IL Festival of Lights Christmas Parade. The parade begun at 6:30pm with a "balmy" temperature of 24F! Actually it wasn't bad at all. It lasted about 30 minutes as the parade wound its way through downtown Rantoul. I could tell by the crowds reaction to us that we were a big hit......even stopping (briefly) for pictures! Next year I will post this event earlier so maybe we can get more troopers to come out for it.
