The holiday season is one of the most fun times of the year. The decorations start to come out, people are a little bit happier, and everyone is just a little bit more generous with their time, money, and kindness. To celebrate all of these things, head out to the 29th annual Dallas Children’s Health Holiday Parade on December 3rd at 10:00am, to kick off the Christmas season. Here is everything that you need to know. The parade began all the way back in 1988 and was started by the Adolphus Hotel and Children’s Health as a gift to the citizens of Dallas for enabling both institutions to prosper. It has grown and evolved into one of the biggest parades in the country and it draws a crowd of approximately 400,000 every single year. As the event happens every December, it gets better with each year that passes. As such, this year’s parade is going to feature festive floats, a marching band, and Santa Claus. It will also be televised nationally to over 100 million homes across more than 350 TV stations. If you’re looking for a fun family activity to join this year, look no further than the Dallas Children’s Health Holiday Parade, and stop by Ewing Buick GMC in Plano, TX, and let us know how you liked it!
A delightful greeting card video from Buick reminded us of some of our favorite stop motion animated holiday specials from Rankin/Bass and Will Vinton. The automaker posted it on YouTube to keep the spirit of the holidays alive in the new year.
The first portion of the gingerbread house video from Buick shows its assembly via time-lapse photography on a table in the center of an office room, worked on by multiple participants.
That gives way to a fully-assembled, modern-looking gingerbread house with a stop-motion animated sequence: a red, edible Buick Regal (a festive color choice) pulls out of the garage and down the driveway.
If the video made you hungry for gingerbread, it’s probably not too late to pick up some at your grocery store on the discount shelf! If you build some of your favorite Buick models out of gingerbread, be sure to share some pictures with Ewing Buick GMC!
