Every year, 9News sponsors the Parade of Lights in Downtown Denver and this past weekend my friends and I went to check it out. (I think we were actually more excited than half of the children there!) It turned out to be tons of fun–there were marching bands, Denver sports team mascots, lots of floats, giant balloons, fire dancers, and so many more cool groups! My two favorite parts of the parade were: 1) the giant penguin balloon and 2) a float about the Denver outdoors (see the pictures below).
TIP IF YOU PLAN TO GO: Dress really warm and bring a thermos of hot cocoa because it gets really cold standing on the side of the road waiting for the whole parade to go by!
