The traditional Olde Golden Christmas Parade began its annual display of everything Christmas and much more on Saturday, Nov. 30. The event, sponsored by the Golden Chamber of Commerce and organized by volunteer extraordinaire Carol Ann Bowles, featured Santa Claus, the abominable snowman and Elvis. Residents who missed the first parade have plenty of opportunities to witness one of Golden’s most revered holiday events, with more parades scheduled for Saturdays Dec. 7, 14 and 21.
