The Traditional Beaufort Christmas Parade was held Sunday, Dec. 6 to a very large crowd and a record 118 entries. The parade went through the streets of Beaufort and featured Floats, Bands, groups of walkers from various organizations, Santa Claus and Sea Island Rotary’s entry of Woody’s 53 Chev pick up trailing a kayak of mine. We were promoting our Charity Shrimp race with crowd pleaser Rion Salley as Jumbo the Shrimp. Paul Moore, and Ed Wise and Gary Markham gave away candy and brochures for the Adventure Biathlon. Michael Fleischbein took pictures and rode in the truck with SIRC President Chuck Ingle.
