One of the oldest parades in US!

District 7 and Council Member Roberto Uranga and staff were gracious hosts of one of the neatest holiday events in LB! And Rose Park was included.

At the Daisy Ave Christmas Tree Lane Parade we were so busy trying to stay on our bikes – decked with holiday roses – that we captured just a few photos. But because we were behind one of the show stopping bands which the crowd loved – we are probably in dozens of home videos!!!! We met Council Member Uranga and were able to give District 7 a beautiful bouquet! And we spoke with former State Senator Betty Karnette – who recalled living on E7th, and hugs from Council Member Pearce whose daughter Jubilee was fashionably attired in a green lace dress! And towards the end just when we were in sight of the finish line – we heard our names shouted…..many of you will know Jeff Anderson and Torey Carrick and their sons who came out on the parade route to bolster us!

We hope we are invited back next year – thank you District 7!

[parade entrants: John, Patti, Gretchen and Richard]
