Santa surprised guests yet again in the 32nd annual Alton Christmas parade Sunday afternoon bringing up the rear in an old-fashioned tobacco sled.
This year’s parade included numerous antique cars and trucks, emergency service vehicles, four-wheelers and several floats, and parade-goers enjoyed a bake sale featuring items cooked by Cedar Grove United Methodist Church members.
The annual event had to be rescheduled from Saturday morning due to rainy weather. Bright skies and temperatures in the low 50s Sunday afternoon attracted hundreds of parade watchers to the village of Alton for the annual holiday tradition.
