Pascetti Steel Design Updates and Modifies Speed Boat for Spot in Twinkle Light Parade 2013

Twinkle Light Parade 2013

As the holiday season draws near, even Pascetti Steel Design can't help but get into the spirit and spread some cheer. For the second year in a row, Pascetti Steel Design participated in Albuquerque's Annual Twinkle Light Parade.  This year's float came in the form of an old speed boat named "Santa Cruz," fully decked out with custom modifications that allowed for it to be carted around town on the heels of a small ATV. Adorned with rope lights, LED's, a built-in sound-system and more, the Santa Cruz was the belle of this holiday ball.

Ol' Santa Cruz was shown in the parade last year as well, minus many of the modifications that she modeled this year. In 2012, she took 1st place in the misfits category, thus allowing Pascetti Steel Design to choose our spot in the parade this year. We floated along near the front of the pack - one of the first floats to appear in the parade. This year, our float WON best of show - tied with the Girl Scouts. Thank you to everyone that joined us for an evening of festive fun!

The 2013 Twinkle Light Parade was held in conjunction with the 2013 Nob Hill Holiday Shop & Stroll, a unique holiday shopping event. This event is family friendly, and boasts traffic-free shopping from noon-10pm in Albuquerque's beautiful and historic Nob Hill neighborhood. There were a number of local vendors on site, along with all the stores along Nob Hill, which stayed open late for holiday shoppers. There were also plenty of great restaurant options, along with a variety of food trucks from around the Albuquerque area. As for entertainment, strolling musicians, carolers and other local acts took to the streets throughout the duration of the event. Santa made a special appearance as well! The parade kicked off just after dark, at 5:15 p.m. at Central and Washington, and then worked its way west to Girard.

If you didn't make it out this year, please join us next year for a really great local event. Happy Holidays from Pascetti Steel Design!
