31st Annual Christmas Parade
From Issue: Volume XXI - Number 25
By Alex Campbell
BOTH KIDS AND PARENTS cheered on the 100-plus marching bands and floats which made their way down and back up 2nd Street in Belmont Shore on Saturday, Dec 7. As the festivities proceeded, the temperature continued to drop while the crowd waited for Santa Claus to make a showing. Riding atop Long Beach Fire Department engine 13, Claus waved and wished everyone a Merry Christmas, concluding the parade and signaling that it was time for spectators to go home for hot chocolate.
