My family and I look forward every year to bundling up and heading downtown to watch San Luis Obispo’s annual Holiday Parade. There is no better way to get into the holiday spirit! It starts at 7:00 this Friday night the 3rd and usually ends around 8:30. Our other favorite holiday tradition is attending the Morro Bay Lighted Boat Parade which is scheduled for Saturday night the 4th. The fun starts at 6:30 when you’ll see decorated boats cruise the harbor from Tidelands Park to Morro Rock. It is a much smaller version of the Balboa Holiday Boat Parade my husband and I watched growing up in Southern California. Fun, fun, fun and guaranteed to get you in a festive mood!
