If you have a red and green umbrella, tonight may be a good night to show it off.  Lowell's Santa Parade and Grand Haven's Jingle Bell Parade are both tonight.

Lowell's Santa Parade starts on Main Street at 6:00 tonight.  Get there early for pancakes, shopping, pictures with Santa, crafts for the kids, and more.

Grand Haven's Jingle Bell Parade starts on Franklin Street at 6:00 tonight.  The parade will head west down Frankin to Harbor, then north to Washington, then east to Central Park.  After the parade there will be a tree lighting, Christmas carols, and hot chocolate...all at Central Park.

The weather outside is a bit frightful, but nothing a little hot chocolate can't cure.
