Hundreds turned out on a bright sunny afternoon for the Alexandria Christmas Parade Saturday.
The parade featured seasonal floats, the DCHS band, vintage automobiles, and of course, Santa Claus, among many other entries.
Phil Jones of NewsChannel 5 flew to town in the Sky 5 helicopter and he served as Grand Marshal of the Parade.
The West Main Baptist Church of Alexandria took first place among the parade entries. The Alexandria First Baptist Church received second place and Mason Carter's antique tractor took third place.
Many people also won drawings for cash, country hams, bicycles, and a $100 savings bond after the parade.
