Seward's Lighted Christmas Parade

Here are some pictures of the Seward Lighted Christmas Parade that began in front ofour house last Saturday evening and proceeded down Seward Street. My pictures didn't turn out very well so I borrowed some. Jerry Meyer always does an excellent job of bringing our new Nebraska National Guard Museum to the forefront. It was a beautiful evening and a large number of people lined Seward Street from 1st to 13th Street to see the many colorfully lighted entries.
Here are our Great Grandchildren with their parents bundled up to watch the parade in the downtown area. I'm sure Sadie enjoyed all the colorful lights and the fire trucks would have been Jacks favorites.The live tree was lighted in front of the Courthouse during the parade and extra lights were added to the little cupola above the dome. It is from the little windows in the cupola that I took pictures of the downtown area in 1952 and went back up in 1993 and took another bunch. There were many changes and yet, much remained the same.
