I took a quick day trip to New Ulm, MN in early November. While there my friend Ian and I ate some homemade German food, toured to Schell's Brewery and met a teen in a Burger King parking lot to buy an AT-AT and Millenium Falcon. Your typical Saturday afternoon.
In mid-December I went down to Chicago to see some friends. Lots of food and sports.

If you ever thought about doing a similar set up on your own ride, this is what the electrical in the back of the bus looked like. Per Christina's info, the Twinkle Bus is decorated with more than 23,000 LED lights, which consume a fraction of the power used by lights in the original Twinkle Bus. After the parade season, the metal frames that hold the lights in place and equipment inside the bus will be removed, and the bus will be returned to service.
Happy New Year!
