Ranch residents enjoy annual golf cart parade

Neighbors at SaddleBrooke Ranch were cheering on the 15 electric carts decorated for the holidays that paraded around the neighborhood on Friday, December 14. With little time to prepare there were many clever decorated carts. We had a Santa sleigh, snow covered carts bringing home their holiday tree, holiday cart with their surf boards and palm trees, Mom and Dad in their PJs, plus many other clever decorations. The participants met at La Hacienda Clubhouse to receive their number for their cart used for the judging. At 2:30 p.m. the parade, led by parade marshal and HOA manager Tim Fudge, accompanied by assistant manager Andrea Marcus and Bistro manager Danielle Herbert, left La Hacienda Clubhouse. The parade headed past the sales office and models towards our most eastern unit of SaddleBrooke Ranch. In spite of the wind the parade participants toured several streets around the neighborhood for the next hour. Once the parade returned to the clubhouse residents voted on the top three holiday decorated carts.

The winners of the 2016 Holiday Parade:

First place: Linda and Ken Gorman, presented with a $50 Bistro gift card

Second place: Dan and Charlene Culver, presented with a $30 Bistro gift card

Third place: Karl and Madoka Knight, presented with a $25 Bistro gift card
