During my time as Princess, I have come to realize that the people of the Brunswick County beaches are some of the friendliest around. I always feel SO welcome when I go there. This time was no exception.
The Oak Island Christmas Parade was a lot of fun. It is obvious that this is a tight knit beachside community that loves their Christmas traditions…and their Christmas Parade! I was truly amazed at how many people attended the parade, and how thrilled each and every one of them was to be there.
My favorite part was talking with some of the other parade participants before hand, and seeing all the different floats. There were antique cars, dogs in elf suits, and even a float with Oompa Loompas on it (my favorite)!! The weather was beautiful and sunny for the parade, and it was truly a wonderful day. I felt so welcome, and was honored to meet some of the residents and share in their special tradition.
