Since Wilson is home for the weekend I stole her tonight to accompany me to the downtown Parade of Lights. The shindig was set to start at 7:30 pm, but it was hell getting a parking spot. It felt like we spent more time trying to circle around the block than we did at the entire event. We found a good spot to stand on 3rd Street which was right at the beginning of the parade route. Then we settled in for an hour of brightly lit entertainment.
