Festival of Lights Parade: Palm Springs, Ca
This past weekend I attended the Festival of Lights Parade in Palm Springs, California. As the night sky darkened, float's were illuminated and the community of Palm Springs gathered along the streets to celebrate the holiday season. I cannot say enough about Palm Springs and the surrounding community, they are so loving and supportive. It was chilly that night, but as we all gathered in the car and began the parade route I forgot all about how cold it was. Waving to the children and seeing their smiling faces brought back great childhood memories for me. I not only got to ride in a parade, but also was able to spend the weekend with my sister queens and director Eddie Peterson. It was the first time we were all together since we won our titles in September. It was nice to visit and catch up with what everyone has been doing. I am blessed and thankful to be involved in the California International pageant family and all that it represents. Merry Christmas to you and your families.May we all remember what this time of year is really about. Christmas is about the birth of a baby boy who ultimately paid for our sins. God Bless.
