 Ship Bottom Parade December  2021

The wind subsided and the sun came out as the Garden Club of LBI’s holiday float made its way down Long Beach Boulevard in the annual Ship Bottom Christmas Parade. The decorating of the float was spear-headed by Karen Martinez with several garden club members giving a helping hand.  Snoopy looked quite at home by the mantle  reflecting  the parade  theme  of  “Comfort and Joy for Christmas” while members lead the way with a lively walk.
