Photos: City of Atlantis 26th Annual Holiday on Wheels Golf Cart Parade

On December 10th, Amy and her son Dillon were honored to serve as judges for the 26th Annual Holiday on Wheels Golf Cart Parade in their home City of Atlantis!

The fun kicked off around 5:30 where the decorated carts assembled in the Atlantis Country Club parking lot. After a delicious dinner organized by the City, and events for the kids (they brought in snow!), the police escorted parade “floats” 😉 through the city.

From their festive driveway parties, neighbors watched the carts go by. The highlight may have been the gold cart, from which participants through candy to the spectators.

The parade concluded at the Atlantis Municipal Complex, and the judges awarded prizes for the best carts. The Holiday Homes (decorating contest) were also awarded here!

Shout-out the Atlantis Police Department for their support and facilitation! We always appreciate our officers, who escort those in the parade around the City and block off streets for the protection of all who are enjoying the parade!
