Christmas parade 2017

On Saturday afternoon Rensselaer held its annual Christmas parade. Line up was around the perimeter of the Monnett-Staddon Park.
Each year the parade has a different group of entries. This year there were entries from candidates running for sheriff and surveyor. This year the Station at Embers had a float.
 There were no camels this year--Trinity United Methodist Church did not have an entry. The only animals were two horses and when they got to the reviewing station, the riders cautiously stood up.
 The Abate float had more lights on it than any other float.
The Boy Scouts' float was about a float.
 INDOT had a couple of massive trucks with snow plows in the parade. The snowplow on the front truck had been decorated by Head Start kids.
 Watching the kids scramble for candy may be more amusing that watching the parade itself.

Here is the post on last year's parade.

Other area communities have had their kick-off-to-Christmas events. DeMotte and Morocco had a tree lighting, Monticello had a parade.

Thanks for the pictures. I wanted to show my daughter the floats. You are an excellent reporter.
