The 2010 Lovingston Christmas Parade was special in so many different ways. First it snowed! That made it a perfect backdrop for the Christmas season. But more importantly, this year’s parade held a special remembrance for 7 year old Connor Craig of Shipman who tragically died over Thanksgiving weekend, from a hunting accident. Countless people held candles in memory of Connor.

Our NCL Mountain Photographer, Paul Purpura, traveled down from the mountain and braved the cold to grab shots at this year’s parade!
