Does anyone know where I can purchase holiday cards that have a Coronado theme? Last year I received one of Santa walking in front of the Hotel del on the beach but can't make out the artist's name.

The artist is Sara Rowe and she is listed in our local Coronado telephone book.

Christmas parade tonight...Orange Ave. closes 6 blocks of traffic for the parade and shopping after the parade, Santa lights up the Rotary Park Christmas tree and Christmas music by the Coronado Community Band under the tree. It's so much fun and a great start to the Christmas season. See ya' there and don't forget the hot buttered rum!! Ho, Ho, Ho
