Santa Fe Catholic's National Art Honor Society's Christmas Float
Our National Art Honor Society students have been busy working since September to design, paint and decorate the Christmas float to participate in Lakeland's Christmas parade.
Our Christmas float is now ready to be part of Lakeland's annual Christmas Parade, Thursday, December 6th. We will be float # 33 in the lineup.

The theme this year is Christmas storybooks. Our NAHS students chose "Madeline's Christmas" which takes place in France. For the set we have the Eiffel Tower, a night time starry sky and an oversized book "Madeline's Christmas" and of course Madeline and her friends and their Nun. The young ladies will all be dressed in red with the typical Mad eline wide brimmed hats.
We hope you will be at the parade to not only to enjoy seeing Santa Fe Catholic's float and our Crimsonettes who will be performing their dance routine, but to also enjoy all the festivities and over the 100 floats participating in the parade.
