Talk of the Bay: Holiday in the Park 2010
Friday night, League Park was filled with twinkling lights as the wonderful smell of popcorn drifting through the air. Mickey, Minnie, Daisy and Donald were all on the big movie screen at to kick off the annual Holiday In the Park celebration.
Saturday morning, with the little ones dressed in their favorite holiday outfits, magical elves escorted the children in the traditional Candy Cane Parade. Starting near Butler’s Courtyard the procession made its way down the street, past the fire station, through League Park, over the tiny wooden bridge and straight to the lap of the big jolly guy himself, Santa. The rest of the morning was spent making sure that Santa knew exactly what each and every child wanted for Christmas morning
That evening, excitement mounted as tens of thousands of parade watchers lined the streets waiting for the exciting holiday parade. This year’s parade was led by the Groce family who shared the honor of being the 2010 Holiday In The Park Grand Marshalls. Following the Grand Marshalls, were dozens of parade entrants, many stopping in front of the judges to perform and show off their holiday spirit.
Throughout the weekend, the park was filled with vendors offering unique gift ideas and yummy things to eat and drink. Now in its second decade, this holiday tradition is organized and hosted by League City Proud.
