Spirit of Christmas Parade- Light Up Night!

Yesterday was the 48th Annual Spirit of Christmas Parade here in Butler. It was the first one that was moved to Saturday to coincide with Light Up Night. It was also the first night parade in Butler with unicycles!

We had a fantastic turnout- so much so that we all didn't fit in the group picture Rob took! Thanks to the Wonders Unicycle Club for joining us and bringing our number of riders into the high teens. (We were over 20 participants including walkers!)

Thanks to Jeff Rapp of Rapp's Bicycle Center for providing us with extra lights (as well as supporting us from the start). Jeff also rides a uni with us!

A HUGE thanks to the Butler Media Group for organizing the parade and welcoming us.

Also, a massive thanks to the Butler Y! Without their support we wouldn't be trying to ride unicycles on Main Street during a parade in the dark. They have supported us from day 1. Their community support is amazing to say the least. Please stop by and check out unicycling at the Y and also look at all the other programs they provide. The Y is an essential organization to a healthy community.

Next Saturday is December 1st. Join us for unicycling 4:30-6:30 and after we're heading out to someplace nearby to eat.

And- with the Holiday Season approaching, consider the gift of unicycling. We'll teach people to ride for free, but at some point you'll want to have one of your own.

November 24th- Light Up Night Parade!

Note: There will be NO indoor practice at the YMCA next Saturday. We'll be meeting at the same time nearby for the parade.

Spirit of Christmas Parade details:

We will meet in the Forcht parking lot (it's on the corner of E. Penn St. and Main St.) at 4:30 pm. The parade starts at 5:30. The theme is "Lights" so bring a blinky light (or more) so we can buzz around like a bunch of holiday lightning bugs. We'll also have some extras courtesy of Jeff Rapp. Dress for the weather- rain or shine or snow or whatever else PA throws at us in November!

We need riders and walkers, so if you can't ride yet, but would like to be a post to help someone remount, or carry the banner, or hand out flyers for us and the Y, we can use you!

Speaking of the Y, we should have T-shirts to borrow (XL mostly) to put over a hoodie so we can represent the Y. Without them, we wouldn't be where we're at today! We hope that they're Holiday green or red, but we don't know for sure yet- I'll post the confirmed color as soon as I know. Plan on being dressed in green or red anyways.

The parade is the length of Main Street. We guess it will be about an hour long and it's Light Up Night afterwards so Butler will be buzzing. We look forward to seeing you there!

Just to remind you...

Just a quick reminder - there will be no Y meeting this Saturday, Nov. 10th. There's a basketball tournament at the Y, and they'll be using both gyms.

But, we can't wait to see everyone the following week! It was great to see so many new faces and so many regulars last Saturday! This year's indoor sessions are going to be quite different than last year's sessions.

See you in 2 weeks when we're looking forward to practicing some parade formations for the Butler Light Up Night Parade the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

See you then.
