Rounding out three days of holiday cheer in Beaufort the annual Christmas parade wound its way around downtown on Sunday, November 5.
In all some 80 entries from bands to, trucks, to flame-shooting hot air balloon baskets, and quick appearance by Beaufort's beloved Tootie Fruity entertained hundreds parade watchers on Boundary, Carteret, and Bay streets for an hour an 15 minutes on the chilly afternoon.
