We Love a Parade!

  Our collie club is going to participate in the Leesburg Holiday Parade this Saturday.  It's just a fun event, and an opportunity to let the community know about the club.  To do that, I printed labels with the club's web address and "Find Us on Facebook"! that I then stuck on 300 wrapped candy canes.  Actually, 296--one wrapper was empty, one wrapper wasn't sealed and we seemed to be shorted 2 candy canes.  We'll pass out the candy canes to parade spectators along the about one mile route.
  Hopefully, the collies will draw more attention than the candy!  We have about 10 people participating and about 8 collies with two other dogs who will be collies for the day.  The dogs will be wearing antlers or other festive attire, if willing.  Lauren will be pulling her wagon that will be decorated with garlands and stockings.  Her harness will have bells on it that I polished up this morning.
  Saturday's weather is predicted to be chilly, but that should help put us in the Christmas mood!
  Here's the prep so far:
