Many participants rode their bikes and walked their dogs the short distance from 38th Street Park up Balboa Boulevard to Channel Place Park. At Channel Place Park, a festival organized by the city's Recreation and Senior Services Department offered carnival games, jump houses and food.

IRVINE — Purim may start Sunday, but preschoolers at the Merage Jewish Community Center in Irvine got a head start on festivities Friday. Spiderman, Tinker Bell, Wonder Woman and other familiar faces made it out for the celebration — in costume. Purim is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the saving of the Jews by Queen Esther and her cousin Mordechai from the royal vizier to King Ahasuerus, Haman, who was plotting to kill followers of Judaism. Public celebration is just one of the many aspects of the annual holiday.

PASADENA — A legion of students from across California decorated floats that appeared in Saturday's Tournament of Roses Parade. These included about a dozen students from Orange Coast College and three students from Estancia High School in Costa Mesa. They were among an estimated 300 students from Orange County who boarded charter buses bound for Pasadena early Wednesday morning, when rain returned to the Southland. The local students made the trek north to help the Kiwanis International service club decorate its Rose Parade float and other floats.

I am sure that William Lobdell's Friday column ("Lobdell: Boat Parade is great — for everyone else") was written tongue-in-cheek?

Yes, not only are you the ultimate Grinch, but...

"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" is not my favorite Christmas song, but boy was it the perfect song for Friday night's Christmas Boat Parade, put on by the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce. I know, I know, it was raining, enough to make me think we were in San Francisco, but I'm happy to say everyone on the Chamber of Commerce boat, which led the parade, from the oldest adults to the smallest kids, didn't let the weather kill their Christmas cheer. Among others on board our vessel were Channel 5 Weatherman Henry and Lisa DiCarlo and their two children, Traditional Jewelers owner Lula Halfacre and her daughter, Natalie , Beth and Tim Shield, Patricia Moore, Cara and Mark Lies , and chamber Membership Services Director Pam Smith . I was lucky enough to be able to bring my boyfriend, Chris, my parents, Fred and Cindy, and my baby sister, Kelli (she's just finished her first semester at college, for those of you who have been waiting on an update)
