It Rained On Our Parade but…

Even a little rain on our Feather Fiesta Days parade could not keep the throngs of people away from the Lake Oroville real estate market for our annual week-long celebration of our hometown.

The Saturday before Mother’s Day is the tradition kick-off to the wealth of spring and summer activities that abound it the Lake Oroville real estate  area each year.

In case you missed it, or it was just too darned cold outside for you, here is a short video of the parade with only one small complaint. Can someone control the number of Santa Claus’s that are in the parade?  As one 4 year old girl put it. “There were 5 Santas in the parade and there is only supposed to be one Santa!”

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
