As I mentioned in a previous post - DeLand is full of weekend happenings. Another annual favorite is the big Christmas Parade... when I was growing up this was held during the day - and was always looked forward to - since leaving DeLand they have kicked it up a notch and now hold the parade at night complete with floats decked out with lights.
We were invited to a parade "tailgate" where we enjoyed great views (roadside seats can be hard to come by sometimes!) and yummy food!
