When the 2017 Oriental Spirit of Christmas parade was challenged by 42 degree temps, steady drizzle, and a 6.4 knot wind providing a wind chill of 36.7, left-brained members of NCCHA felt exposure to those elements could be too challenging.

Oriental’s iconic right-brained fishing family, Keith, Marianne, Zachary, and Ben Bruno stepped up to the plate. The Bruno family made it possible for NCCHA’s Frances Mae to delight the throngs along the parade route, collecting accolades all along way. Ben Bruno made a tropical impression of Jimmy Buffet as Keith Bruno drove the tow vehicle.
