Approximately 450 guests lined the streets from John Kassen Field to the Valley View town square to watch the annual holiday parade.
Parade participants included floats, antique cars, walking dogs, fire trucks, EMS vehicles, trucks from Alan Ritchey, and area rodeo royalty.
Serving as grand marshalls were local pastors Mr and Mrs. Wiebe, Ken Ceburn, Ray Hall, Ken Pearse, and Cheryl Murphy.
The marshals rode on a decorated trailer with elves.
