About 15 floats participated in this year’s annual Santa Clause Parade on Friday, Dec. 21, including entries from local governments and businesses.

The parade wound its way down Woodland Drive from the clinic to NorthMart, with vehicles and people lining the streets on either side. While some were impressed by the lights and effort put into the floats every year, others were just happy to be getting into the holiday spirit.

“The best part about this is the celebration of Christmas,” said Madison Beck.
