Default Christmas Cheer

I wanted to invite you to come out and see what a few of us have been putting together.
You need to check out the night time Coopersville or Grand Haven Christmas Parades this coming weekend. I know it is kind of late notice but to be honest, this is our first year doing this and it wasn't until Monday night that we had all pieces done.
This is NOT us but it did serve as our inspiriation.


The Coopersville parade (just W of Grand Rapids) is Friday night, Dec 2, and starts at 7 pm.
The Grand Haven parade is Saturday night, Dec. 3, and starts at 6pm

Yep.
Starts on Main at 64th and heads east on Main. Ends at the South Elementary School.

Hope you can make it!

Coopersville starts at 7pm.

Unfortunately no, we can`t have more jeeps. The number of vehicles and length of our parade entry had to be submitted at registration, which took place several weeks ago. Both parades seem to be very strict with that.

The electronics has taken a lot of time and research to build. Right now we only have enough controller for 5 vehicles.
