Red Wing Holiday Stroll - 11/25/2016

We had so much fun and REALLY enjoyed ourselves; I couldn't stop smiling all evening!  The weather was just perfect to be outside and dressed for a Thanksgiving weekend!  This was the kind of Black Friday to have, the crowd was huge and made the Holiday Stroll just that much better.

The 15th year for the event but our first time and we were lucky enough to join Peg's mom downtown as we Strolled about.  Lauren joined us only later since she was helping at Red Wing's treasure, the lovely restored Sheldon Theater where Santa and Mrs. Santa were hosting sittings.
