The Christmas Island Style street parade took over San Marco Road on Saturday evening, on a night so warm it felt like it could have been the Fourth of July parade, with nighttime temperatures in the 80s and a nearly full moon rising. Spectators lined the street several deep, and after participants finished their stint, they swelled the crowd, coming back in costume or carrying instruments to watch the rest of the entertainment.
