NEWS BLOG (WSAU) My favorite event each year is the Wausau Holiday Parade. It's the perfect start to a midwest Christmas.
It's kind of hokey -- a chance for businesses to parade in front of the townsfolk. But it's also a chance to wish large numbers of people a Merry Christmas.
My impression of a midwest Christmas is "A Christmas Story" -- where Raphie wants a BB gun and is told that he'll shoot his eye out. During the holiday parade, I can image the trip to the department store to visit Santa, sticking your tongue to a flagpole, trying to find a restaurant that's open on Christmas.
I'll be driving the WSAU Trailblazer. Give a big wave and say "hello" tonight.
