In Focus: Dino-mite

While waiting for the annual Electric Christmas Parade to begin on Main Street in downtown St. Charles a couple of weeks ago, I heard a flurry of activity down the street and “oohs” and gasps from the crowd.

As I looked to my left, I also heard some chuckling from families who had camped out along the curb.

In the dark, I could slowly make out a dinosaur under the streetlights as it made its way east down the street on foot with some friends.

It was definitely the last sight I thought I’d see at a holiday event that featured Santa Claus as the guest of honor.
