Our Most Popular Social Media Posts of the Year!

Social media is a strange, strange world, but some things just strike a chord with people. Based on the most popular Facebook posts of the year, you like to learn about what is going on in our communities!

Our top social media post of the year was a video that Nick shot during the downtown Joliet holiday parade this year when a giant nutcracker balloon had to do the limbo to get under a street light! The video reached nearly a half a million people, and it likely our most popular social media post of all time! It’s as close to going viral as it gets for our little operation!
