    Dunedin boat parade, festival

    Dunedin will have a Christmas Boat Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony from 7 to 9:30 tonight at Edgewater Park. The Harmony Harbor Chorus will sing, and the lighted boats will arrive at Dunedin Marina about 8:15 p.m. You can return to the park Saturday for the "Happy Holly-Daze" Christmas Festival, featuring an arts and crafts show, children's activities, a snow mountain and entertainment from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Dunedin annual Christmas Parade will begin at 11 a.m. at Alternate U.S. 19 and San Jose Drive, and will travel to Edgewater Park.

    Clearwater parade

    The Clearwater Holiday Parade will begin at 7 tonight with marching bands, clowns, classic cars, festive walking units, at least 40 floats and special guest Santa Claus. The parade will take a 2-mile route along Cleveland Street in downtown Clearwater, beginning at the staging area at Crest Lake Park. The best viewing area is from Highland Avenue to Osceola Avenue. Don't forget to take a new, unwrapped toy; they're being collected by Marine ROTC volunteers for the Toys for Tots program.

    Deck the paws with fun and folly

    If you've ever adopted a dog or cat from Animal Services, you won't want to miss a free Family Reunion and Community Celebration from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at 12450 Ulmerton Road, Largo. Of course the pets are the special guests and are encouraged to attend if they are licensed and on a leash or in a carrier. They can be photographed with Mrs. Santa Paws, and their owners can enjoy food, prizes, live music, clowns, face painting, tours and workshops. Prizes include free pet adoptions, free microchip identification implants, and tickets to Busch Gardens and Lowry Park Zoo. Dr. Kenny Mitchell and his staff will answer questions and host workshops on pet care. For more information, call (727) 582-2600.
