The WMRR elves were hard a work the day after Thanksgiving creating a float for the Berlin Parade of Lights. The club had a theme similar to last year with a groomer pulling a drag that was pulling a trailer. There was a Christmas tree mounted on the drag surrounded by sign posts that had carved wooden trail signs were pointing to towns in the Berlin area. On the trailer there were some vintage sleds and some new sleds. The groomer, the drag and the trailer were all covered in Christmas lights.
Volunteers who put the float together included George Falardeau, Nate Falardeau, Mike Roy and Scott Riendeau. The groomer was driven in the parade by George Falardeau and candy canes were given out along the parade route by Scott Riendeau.
Here are some pictures taken during the parade:

ball was fitted to the drop-down wheel assembly
