Unusual Sights In South Carolina
Fun Things to Do in South Carolina
Growing up in Pendleton, SC, I was constantly reminded of our history. I can still hear my mama telling us -- every time we passed the Episcopal Church - "that is where Colonel Bee is buried. He is the one who named Stonewall Jackson Stonewall."
As a young mother, we lived in Wagener, South Carolina, and my little children participated in the Wagons to Wagoner Parade with little Randy pulling his baby sister in a wagon -- decorated to look like a covered wagon!
Now in Rock Hill, SC for the past 30 years, we have attended many Come See Me events and concerts, spent days at Carowinds Theme Park, and viewed the beautiful lilies at Landsford Canal.
It seems there are always fun things to do in South Carolina!

Wild and Loose Parade Retraces its Steps in Denver
by Mike Ellis - Independent Mail
Quoted directly from the Independent Mail Newspaper More pictures of this unusual and fun parade are available on the Independent Mail website.
The annual Denver Neighborhood Christmas Parade took place on Sunday, Dec. 21, 2008. The event features a two-lap parade route and allows anyone to take part.
Santa Claus rides through the community of Denver atop an Anderson County firetruck during the annual Denver Neighborhood Christmas Parade Sunday. Hundreds of people turned out to watch the annual event which takes place on a two-lap parade route.
The two-lap Denver Christmas Parade runs on barely controlled chaos.
There's no official organizer, no marching bands or clowns and the registration process has been ruthlessly and efficiently streamlined: There is no registration. Just show up, get in line and follow the previous vehicle.
The Denver procession is called a two-lap parade because the parade turns around at the end and retraces its steps, only this year there were so many participants that the system almost broke down.
On the second lap an antique fire truck, driven by the Hejaz Shriners, and a new fire truck, driven by local firefighters, couldn't pass each other on the two-lane highway. Cars on the side of the road made the passing difficult, but eventually the parade moved on.
