Hundreds lined the downtown streets on a pleasant Saturday afternoon for the annual Smithville Christmas Parade.
As always, the parade featured floats, vintage automobiles, motorcycles, local kings and queens, scouts, horseback riders, the DeKalb County High School Fighting Tiger Band, among many other entries. Of course, the highlight of the parade was the appearance of Santa Claus who rode into town on a fire engine tossing candy left and right to everyone along the parade route.
The Grand Marshal of the Smithville parade was Meteorologist Kelly Cox of NewsChannel 5.
The Cooper's Chapel Baptist Church won first place in the float competition.
DeKalb Community Bank took second place for their float and Walmart received third place and also won the Spirit Award.
The Smithville Parade is sponsored each year by the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department.
