Compton Christmas Parade & More 2014

Christmas In Compton

 

The Christmas Holiday activities are off and running in The City of Compton California!

I was so please when I learned that the Compton Christmas Parade would be held this year! I dusted off my lawn chair and claimed my spot on Compton Blvd midday on a Saturday morning and settled in for a good time. Once the parade got underway my companion was a little taken aback by the knowledge of the city and people that I have come to know in Compton. You see my companion was born and bred in this great city of Compton and has always shared her knowledge of Compton facts with me.  She could not believe that I knew people by name and  they knew me as well as the fact that I was able to give her the “tea” (info) as she puts it on the happening of the city. Here are a few pictures just so you can see all the fun you missed…hope to see you next year!
