Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

 It’s too late this year but you might want to plan a One Tank Trip next Christmas to the historic southwest Ohio town of Lebanon to watch one of the more unique holiday celebrations.

 The annual lighted carriage parade is held on the first Saturday of December each year.  In the afternoon decorated horse-drawn carriages of every size and shape parade through the streets of the town and then after dark the magic happens.  The carriages form up again, but this time tiny battery operated strings of lights are added and the parade take on a fantasy look as they parade through the streets.

 People come from all over the state to watch.  These are pictures from the parade two years ago.  The 2009 parade was the 21st year that the parade has been held and has been proclaimed one of the most unique holiday celebrations in the Midwest.

 You can get more information about the annual parade by visiting the Warren County Vistors Bureau at or call them at: 800-791-4386
