Leadville News – December 5
Parade of Lights, Snowman of Boxes
The Parade of Lights shone bright on historic Harrison Avenue last Friday, presenting a march of twinkling lights that make up Leadville Today! Even Mother Nature showed up, adding her Super Full Moon to the merriment.
The pageantry saw quite a few traditional Nativity Scene floats, as well as the neon glow from emergency services, as their vehicles made their way down historic Harrison Avenue. The competition was fierce and it’s good to see this annual Leadville/Lake County Chamber of Commerce event continue to grow each year. After the parade Santa and Mrs Claus were available to hear children’s wishes and take pictures while enjoying hot cocoa and cookies.
By the end of the evening’s actvities, the parade judges had deliberated and the following prizes were awarded:
- First Presbyterian Church
- Cornerstone Church
- Friends of the Leadville National Fish Hatchery
A Snowman of Boxes Greets Postal Customers
When it’s time to mail off those holiday packages, be sure to stop and pay a visit to the snowman which was made out of Priority Boxes on display in the lobby of the Leadville 80461 Post Office. The art piece is the creation of Joyce Sandoval, a longtime resident of Leadville, and yes, the mother of Leadville Postmaster Greg Sandoval. In fact they are encouraging postal customers to sign their names on the boxes, “just for something fun!”
Readers should also note the artwork in the background which was created by the Lake County Intermediate School students. “It is a nice display of their skills for the public to see,” stated Postmaster Sandoval whose leadership continues to demonstrate great community support of everything Leadville 80461.
