Festival of Lights Parade

When: Sat., Dec. 1, 5:50 p.m. 2012

When it comes to the Festival of Lights Parade (coloradospringsfestivaloflights.org), starting at 5:50 tonight on Tejon Street, you already know what to expect — and it's great. The marching bands rock; the Christmas lights remind you of all you haven't hung; and the night air is crack-your-face freezing. So this year, organizers added a little fire to the mix, or at least the presence of a woman who warms most hearts: forest supervisor Jerri Marr, as grand marshal. It's a fitting way to honor a woman whose work during the Waldo Canyon Fire led to "Keep calm and Jerri Marr" chants in the streets. (Or was that just my neighborhood?) — Bryce Crawford
