Attending The Lowrys Christmas Parade 2016

Hello Christmas travelers!

Once again yours truly took part in the annual Town of Lowrys Christmas Parade with the members of the Brigadier General Micah Jenkins Camp #1569 Sons of Confederate Veterans, the Ann White Chapter #123 United Daughters of the Confederacy, and the 6th Regiment SC Volunteer Reenactors.

It was reported that over 12,000 people stood along the parade route this year. We passed out over 700 small Dixie Cross banners and over a hundred pounds of candy. 

The Confederate soldier and his battle flag were both recognized and overwhelmingly applauded by all those in attendance. It is always a good feeling to promote the positive display of our shared Southern-Confederate historical heritage whenever and wherever possible.

The following photos were taken by me before and during the event.

Once again I hope you enjoyed this photojournal journey with me. 

Have a Merry Christmas 2016 and, as always, have a wonderful Dixie day, y'all!
