The Christmas season in Bakersfield officially starts tonight with the annual Downtown Christmas Parade! It all gets underway at 6:30 at 22nd and L streets, winds it's way down 21st street to G street, and then back up 20th street to around N or so.
Once again I'll be in the Fox tent on 21st street narrating the parade as it passes by.
If you're going to go, dress warmly and leave for downtown right after you finish reading this. Parking can be a chore.
Cheer wildly for Santa.
And pick up after yourselves this year, will ya?
