This Saturday was a beautiful cool sunny day – perfect weather for the annual Hatteras Village Christmas Parade! This mile-long traditional parade brings out neighbors, businesses and visitors full of holiday cheer and a real sense of community.
Among the school marching band, the police departments, churches, horse stables and fire engines were the Surf or Sound Realty Elves! Bounding along the parade route next to a Surf or Sound maintenance truck all done up as the “seashells and jingle bells” float – the elves happily greeted parade-goers and handed out candy canes.
Afterwards everyone gathered at the community center for hot chocolate and cookies, another Hatteras Holiday tradition.
If you are ever in town parade weekend in December – the Christmas Parade is a village event your whole family can enjoy.
