Santa and Mrs Claus on Parade with Stretch the Giant Candy Cane and Dancing Christmas Tree.
Stretch the nine foot Candy Cane helped the town of Meeker send off the U.S. Capital Christmas Tree, a 73-foot Engelmann Spruce on its trip to the U.S. Capital. Joined by a silver and a green Dancing Christmas Trees, Stretch entertained with story telling wit and wisdom, high five antics, posed for many family photos, and kept everyone looking their best with his feather duster mischief! Latter he went Kiss Fishing with his mistletoe fishing pole to good effect! Later, marching in the Parade of Lights, Stretch twirled his Big Lightbulb!
