    The commercials say everything starts November 11 but I was sure the parade wasn't until next week.. I'm so confused!

    (And no Parade of Dreams on Friday the 18th. Just the two Christmas Parades at 5:15pm and 7:45pm)

    Actually, the Snow fall starts THIS Friday (one reason why daily showings of it starts then), the only thing that won't start on the 11th is the Parade. It will start on November 18th.

    I don't understand why they don't just start the parade on the 11th when the other holiday happenings begin.

    This has always been the case, a lot of it had to do with the switchover from the regular parade to the Christmas version, with retraining of the cast, and rehearsals.... Also, cost is a factor, the Christmas Parade always starts the week before Thanksgiving, when large crowds are expected.

    I think we are lucky to get some slower weekdays when we can watch the fireworks and enjoy some of the Christmas spirit.
