As always, the parade featured floats, vintage automobiles, local royalty, scouts, horseback riders and horsedrawn wagons, 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 Marshals of the Smithville parade were the popular bluegrass group "Dailey and Vincent", who have just been nominated for a grammy award.
The Whorton Springs Baptist Church won first place in the float competition.
The Calvary Baptist Church took second place for their float and DeKalb Community Bank received third place as well as the Spirit Award, presented by the Smithville Business and Professional Women's Club.
The Smithville Parade is sponsored each year by the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department.
