Last Saturday’s Jaycee Christmas Parade brought mounted units, drill teams, flag twirlers, antique fire engines, politicians such as Mayor Sam Abed, Assemblywoman Marie Waldron, Councilmen Ed Gallo and John Masson, a Salvation Army Band on a trailer, guys in fezes driving vintage roadsters around, and at least one trailer-float that employed the theme of the parade: “A Superhero Christmas.” That was Boy Scouts and their leaders wearing superhero costumes and flexing bulging fake mus­cles. Dating back to 1950, the 65th Escondido Christmas parade is the longest running community event in North San Diego County, according to the Jaycees website. The parade started at Escondido High School and headed down Broadway to Grape Day Park.
