“People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer
when they’re happy.”
– Anton Chekhov

Kicked off with a fireworks display, the 30th annual Niantic Light Parade boasted dancers, marching bands, and floats, all decorated with thousands and thousands of tiny lights, including this one of Santa’s team of raindeer. Frosty the Snowman float, designed and produced by Sign Craft of Niantic, Conn., with the help of its many volunteers, wraps up the December 8 festivities. — Photos by Mary O’Connor © 2018
