The Christmas parade for our city is traditionally the first Saturday in December, and it's traditionally led by our own Elvis Presley. Well, that just makes total sense that the next character in line for the parade, immediately behind the official banner that kicks off the Williamston light parade would be some guy in a dog costume, accompanied by a dozen well-trained therapy dogs! So Tycho, equipped with blinking lights on his hat, bravely hopped , skipped, and danced the entire length of the city center to the delight & cheering of the thousands of kids & people that lined the street. 3 1/2 hours-worth! --and a plaque from the city that reads "Best first-time entry", along with an invitation to be there for next year's parade!
