St. Augustine Christmas Parade

Just in case anyone was wondering, just like in the book, St. Augustine does have an annual Christmas parade that draws visitors from all over the state. It’s not held on Christmas Eve, but rather on the first Saturday in December. Below are some photos from this year’s parade (which always involves an interesting conglomerate of haphazard parade floats).
