Twain Harte gets the spirit

Festival of headlights

The town of Twain Harte launched its Christmas festivities with the annual parade on Friday night. Mother Lode Internet provided streaming coverage over the internet.

Macy's has nothing to worry about. The Twain Harte parade attracts mostly fire trucks, marchers, and nary a balloon. Unfortunately, the Mother Lode folks positioned their camera in direct line with the headlights of participating vehicles as they came along the parade route (1 block long). Except that it would be unkind, I would call the parade the Festival of Headlights."
