Kenadee Watson, 4, hangs out with Mike and Sulley from the movie Monsters, Inc. before the start of the Villa Park Holiday Boat Parade. Watson was riding on the boat of her neighbor Paul Murphy. Murphy bought the characters off eBay and he said they usually sit in the living room of his house. "We do it (the parade) to create memories for the kids", he said. "This is something they'll remember for the rest of their lives. It gets everyone in the Christmas spirit."
