This year the event started at four pm and that is when we will go next year for sure. The crowds appeared to be doubled what we had last year.
We met Bill and Jo at Tarpon Tavern for a wonderful dinner (as usual). The Grands and their parents joined us as well and, after dinner, we hit the "snow" covered streets of Tarpon Springs. The event was well organized but I don't think the town anticipated the huge crowd. This is great family oriented event. I've been to the one in Clearwater, and this one is so much better suited to kids.
We threw snowballs at each other, caught "snow" in our hands and hair but did not get to see Santa. I somehow managed to take some of the worse pictures ever but here they are. I think I had the setting wrong on my camera...oh well. Will we do it again next year? YOU BET WE WILL!
I am thoroughly enjoying this holiday season...hope you are as well.
