Yes, I was amazed to see a huge Mickey Mouse Santa standing on a Volvo stationwagon as I was stopped at a redlight. And Jose Feliciano's "Feliz Navidad" was blaring from loudspeakers! So naturally I followed the car/float and met the driver, Bobbi, who was happily waving to passersby with her Minnie Mouse glove. She said she has been doing this for years - spreading cheer and goodwill wherever she goes. Talk about Christmas spirit ~ yeah for Bobbi!
She said she also drives around for Halloween and broadcasts "Thriller" as she cruises. I wonder if Mickey dresses up as Count Dracula? I sure hope I run into them in October. Bobbi, Mickey, Minnie & Company will be in this Saturday's downtown parade. Here are all the details.
