" I love getting out and about during the holiday season.  I have two big holiday "gigs" for me coming up  this week. I will be emceeing the Sidney, N.Y. "Holly Jolly Parade" this Friday at 6:00 pm. Come early there will be lots of family fun, music, business specials, giveaways and more up and downtown Main Street starting at 4:00. At last count more than 35 units in the parade making it the biggest one ever! Then, the next day on Saturday Dec. 1, I will be once again emceeing the Santa parade in downtown Oneonta at 11:00. This will be the 15th year for me hosting this, one of Oneonta's biggest events of the year. Always so much fun.

Catch me along the way and say Ho-Ho-Ho.".
