Small town charm

December 7, 2014

Small town living has a lot of perks and one of them has to be local parades.  There is something special about watching your friends and neighbors walk down the street waving, smiling and laughing or hearing someone you know yell out your name as they pass by handing out candy.  .


The residents of Martin County love a good parade and so even though there was some rain early in the evening, the crowds were not to be denied.  East Ocean was lined with happy faces and a cheer could be heard as the parade kicked off.


Frosty welcomed everyone to the Stuart Christmas Parade on a beautiful night in Martin County 



The floats ranged from simply decorated cars



to professional looking floats


and a friendly local cub scout troop


while we'll never see enough snow to make a snowman, we still love them anyway


Santa and friends enjoying an elevated view as they head down the street


This float is going to the dogs


 The bands staged up at Sailfish park waiting for their turn to entertain the crowd.


This float is made out of girlscout cookies- yum! 


and even a float that reminds us of one of the other great things about small town living... the Martin County Fair


While, we may not have won an award, the flame from our RE/MAX of Stuart balloon is always a winner with the kids


Certainly something you won't see up north, a reindeer working a paddleboard


or the neighbors stringing lights on their palm trees


My first time walking in the parade and it was so much fun hearing the kids get excited about the flame shooting out the top of the float.  Love my RE/MAX family.
