The 62nd annual Santa Claus parade, this year titled the Parade of Lights, made its way through Shawville Saturday evening.
The parade was organized by the municipalities of Shawville and Clarendon in collaboration with the Shawville Lions Club.
Floats lined up on West Street and started their journey through town at 5 p.m.
As each of the 20 floats passed by, the excitement grew for the parades final entry, Santa Claus, riding on the Lions Club float.
Prizes donated by the muncipalites of Shawville and Clarendon, for several categories were handed out at the fairgrounds after the parade.
The winners were as follows:
Best Overall - New Hope Christian Fellowship Church
Top Children Entries - Grace Community Bible Church and Shawville Figure Skating
Top Business Entries – Sublime Motorsports, Emmerson Excavation and Custom Tree Services
Best Volunteer Organization Entry – Shawville Lions Club
Best Horse Entry – Kelly Tanner and Grace Pasch
Then, for the first time in a few years, children were able to see Santa and tell him their wish lists in the arena lobby afterwards.
