Laramie residents lined the streets and  braved the  bitter cold weather to  enjoy one of the community's holiday traditions--The Christmas Parade! Volunteers began planning the parade in October and invested close to 120 hours of time. The theme for this year's parade was "Ho-Ho-Holiday- A Country Christmas."  Organizers were forced to postpone the parade last week due to extreme weather.  Ironically, Friday's parade was met with similar weather conditions, leaving Laramie's faithful shivering as they cheered the parade's participants. Community members rode in vehicles decked with 'boughs of holly' and other festive adornments.  The crowd favorite for this year, drawing thunderous cheers from children and adults alike, was the appropriately-colored,  red,  fire engine sponsored by Laramie's fire department.
