Christ­mas pa­rade de­lights in Spa­niard’s Bay

The Compass - - THE COMPASS - PHO­TOS AND TEXT BY NICHOLASMERCER

The wind swirled and the cold bit on the beach in Spa­niard’s Bay on Dec. 15, but that did not de­ter res­i­dents from par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Christ­mas pa­rade. Some dozen floats par­tic­i­pated in the an­nual event, much to the de­light of many of the town’s res­i­dents. Those who took part braved the mi­nus 8 tem­per­a­tures in or­der to en­ter­tain those who watched the pa­rade. Floats in­cluded ath­letic groups, com­mu­nity groups and a host of oth­ers. The Com­pass was there and took th­ese im­ages.

This float de­picted the na­tiv­ity scene. Shown here are: front (l-r) — Ed­wina Brazil, Aliya Shep­pard, Jor­dan Par­sons and Alleigha Ma­honey; back — Ron Brazil, Rachel Par­sons, Sid­ney Shep­pard and Ry­lan Shep­pard.
