Twas the parade before Christmas and all through the town, the gangs were spray painting all over abound. The VFL logo was everywhere to be seen causing poor old Santa to break out in a scream.

Merry Christmas Fallbrook.

Great photos Village News!! A nice variety of what the parade featured. By the way I must have missed all the gang stuff Ray keeps talking about, didn't see the VFL logo myself, not sure where he was at, or maybe he wanted to see it so bad he dreamed it.

Pink: I went to Fallbrook for the parade, even brought a friend "Fonda" who "Never" been to Fallbrook, she noticed it rather quickly. After my apologies regarding Fallbrook, I observed the parade, it was good this year. I even noticed Bill Horn must be losing some "girth".
