Royal greetings everyone!
We were excited to show off all our hard work spent on decorating our beautiful float for Christmas. The first holiday parade was in Tomah on November 24th. It was a cold and rainy night but we still had fun spreading holiday cheer to all who attended.
On December 1st we attended the Sparta Holiday Parade. We were invited to a royalty tea prior to the
parade where they served delicious hot chocolate. This parade was a blast and we received many
compliments on our beautiful capes and lovely decorated float. After the parade we went to see the lights in the park. We took tons of pictures with children, dogs, Santa and Mrs. Claus too! It was a lovely evening to celebrate the Christmas season!
December 2nd we had two events. We started out the day at the Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center for their Christmas Open House. We helped serve cranberry punch, hot cranberry cider and cranberry
hors d’oeuvres and had a great time visiting with the guests. Later that same day we headed to Black River Falls for Christkindl Festival. The city was decorated with beautiful garland wrapped lampposts and a fire pit on each block. The parade wasn't very long, but we received a lot of applause and good comments about our float. Afterwards we took Christmas pictures with some beautiful horses, Mr. & Mrs. Clause, and also the Jackson County Royalty. This concludes our holiday parades but we are looking forward to all the
parades this summer.
December 6th we toured the Wisconsin Capital in Madison. The Capital building is a very beautiful and stunning structure. In the center of the building stood a huge Christmas tree with a toy train circling around it. We also visited Representative Nancy VanderMeer’s office, unfortunately she was out of her
office so we couldn’t get pictures with her. The capital visit was supper fun and an awesome experience!
After visiting the to Capital we went to the Executive Mansion. The mansion was filled with beautiful Christmas trees, each had its own unique decorations. One of the trees was decorated with a variety of fruit and of course they included the best fruit of all, CRANBERRIES! We loved the tour and took lots of
pictures with all the lovely trees. After the tour we went to Ella’s Deli for a wonderful lunch. We enjoyed looking around at all the unique decor in the deli and finished off our meal with delicious ice cream.
Everyone had a wonderful day in Madison and it was a great day to spreading some Holiday Cheer!
