Sparkles and Smiles at SoHum’s Lighted Parade

Southern Humboldt sparkled Friday night at the Soroptimists Annual Lighted Parade. The streets of the tiny town of Garberville were crowded with residents and visitors in a holiday mood. Food vendors (mostly non-profits) tucked into almost every available nook.

The annual parade had perfect weather. The crews of fire engines tossed candy and the floats sparkled as if a few of the stars above had sprinkled glitter below.
