Old Man Winter may be visiting North Carolina, but he couldn't dampen the mood on Saturday. The Fayetteville Rotary held their annual Christmas parade and representatives from the SwampDogs were one of many participants once again. Fun-Go high fived kids of all ages on Saturday as the parade moved through historic, downtown Fayetteville.
Fans were eager to see not just the mascot Fun-Go, but the retro, Volkswagen bus the SwampDogs drove in the parade. Kids and parents were excited as Fun-Go posed for pictures and greeted the everyone lining the streets.
Next for the SwampDogs is their 1st annual Kickball tournament and Toys for Tots toy drive. That will be held at J.P. Riddle Stadium this Saturday beginning at 9 AM. The number of teams is maxed out, but individuals wanting to play can still come out and will be added to a team. Rome 'N Round Pizza will be on location as well. Everyone is encouraged to bring a new unwrapped toy to donate for Toys for Tots.
