The holiday spirit is in the air and to celebrate, many of our tribes have decided to represent the Y Guides community by walking in their local Christmas parades. Y Guides is excited to have support in the Raleigh, Durham, Apex and Wake Forest parades, just to name a few. For many of our tribes participating in community parades, this is a new opportunity for an outing and a fun way to spend time with one another. A number of our dads have walked in their local parades for multiple years and have managed to grow the number of tribes walking each year. One parade that has seen many new faces over the years is the Cary Christmas parade.
Benjamin Mount of the Crazy Caterpillars and Blooming Butterflies tribes along with the Screaming Ninja Warriors, Dragonfly Sisters, and the Pink Fluffy Unicorns participated in the Cary Christmas parade on December 9. The cold and snow couldn’t keep this excited group of Y Guides away! When asked why Benjamin and his tribes participate each year he said, “Walking in the Cary Christmas Parade is a great opportunity for my daughters’ tribes to spend time together and it is something we look forward to each year.” Mr. Mount also shared a bit about his experience while walking in the parade, “We saw so many familiar faces and the kids loved handing out fireballs!”
Y Guides is so thankful for such a supportive community that love sharing our message of strengthening the father-child relationship through one-on-one activities. If you are interested in walking in your local parade, reach out to Y Guides in early November to reserve your banner or have us connect you with a group walking in your community. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Y Guides staff.
