Here’s a scene of Fairhope’s Magical Christmas Parade from a few years ago. Once again, I’ll have a great view from the balcony of Page and Palette Bookstore where I’ll be the guest announcer for WABF Radio 1480AM as we give you live, exciting coverage of each and every detail!
The regular host, Lori Dubose, rides in the parade and gets a great reception as the unofficial voice of Fairhope. So, while she’s living my dream waving from the back of a convertible, I fill in for her with co-host Mark Swally. He’s so much fun, Maybe I have the better end of the deal after all!
Here we are covering last year’s parade. There are so many pages of details to go through, it all gets jumbled. Each unit in the parade is supposed to fill out a description page. Some write nothing on it, and others write an entire novel that we don’t have time to read. — this is when we get creative and just start “improvising.” If you are in the parade this year — stick to the MAIN FACTS! And, put identifying signs on your entry . . . just a little public service announcement.
This year, the Downtown Art Galleries, and probably a few merchants will be open for a Christmas version of Art Walk. Come early from 5:30 – 7:00pm and stroll around the town, then watch the parade at 7pm. You can tune in to 1480AM to hear the parade, or if you live out of broadcast range, you can tune in through their web site WABF — in the black strip at the top of the page, there is “listen live.” Click there to be instantly transported to Fairhope!
We had a great Thanksgiving, even though I came down with a bad sort of cold/not quite the flu/princess/sinus thing that is going around. I still feel horrible now, so I need to shake it off by parade time on Friday! I’m also looking forward to a speaking engagement I have Friday at lunch. It’s a great group, and I’m so excited to be with them. I’ll sprinkle some glitter around and feel festive by then, I’m sure.
