When a global pandemic works its Grinchiness all over traditional holiday activities, it’s time to get creative. And that’s exactly what the town of Carolina Beach, N.C., did when it dreamed up Parking Meters on Parade, which encouraged residents to transform the town’s parking meters into celebrations of the December holidays.

Families and groups decorated 19 parking meters, including the one pictured here, transformed into the “Christmas Story” leg lamp by Lat 34 Engineering, LLC.  When the decorating was finished, residents and visitors were encouraged to visit the meters for photos and socially distanced holiday merriment.

We, of course, think this is the perfect holiday fun in a year that’s pretty weird about such things. Cheers to you, Carolina Beach! To read more and see more photos, click here.
