Rain Didn't Stop Christmas Parade

by Ramonica R. Jones

It literally rained on the Christmas parade Monday in Lufkin, but that didn't stop folks from getting in the holiday spirit.

There were a few sprinkles falling when the parade got underway. By the time Santa passed, by it was pouring. Jolly old Saint Nick wished everyone a "Merry Christmas" anyway.

The parade only lasted half an hour, but there were several floats including the Lufkin Middle School band, local fire departments and, of course, Kris Kringle and his reindeer.
