CHESTERFIELD — Bundled up with scarves and hats, residents lined the streets of downtown Chesterfield Dec. 5 in anticipation of the Christmas parade. The young and young at heart waited anxiously as the sirens and flashing lights signaled the start a few minutes after 6 p.m.

While they waited, some took advantage of the mobile cotton candy and candy apple cart strolling down the street. Leading the long line of entrants were fire trucks from several departments in the county.

There was something for everyone — four-wheelers, convertible cars, big trucks, floats decorated with bright lights and Nativity scenes reminding everyone the reason for the season.

Several high school bands pounded the pavement while playing their rendition of Christmas classics. Beauty queens and leaders of the community waved at the crowd, wishing everyone a merry Christmas.

There was even one surprise entry into the parade. Simply following the crowd, one driver had no idea she was on the parade route until she noticed the crowd of people.

Santa ditched his customary sleigh and ended the parade in a convertible with gleaming rims.
