Around 50 community organizations, businesses, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, and other groups marched or rode in colorful, brightly lit floats during the hour-long parade, with jolly St. Nick bringing up the rear.
Then everyone walked to Depot Park with Santa and Mrs. Claus for tree-lighting ceremonies, hot cocoa, coffee, popcorn and other treats, enjoying the Christmas spirit.
