You Shoulda Been There The Xela Xmas Parade

Whatever Happened to Theme Parties?

Those of us who remember Xela in 2009 know that there were piles and piles of theme parties. 70’s/80’s Nights, Paca Parties, Other Creative Ideas. The Editors of this fine rag have noticed a distinct lack of theme parties in 2010 to our disappointment. [Click on the link for details […]
