Chocowinity Christmas Parade

Residents and visitors in Chocowinity got an early start celebrating the holidays Saturday with the sights and sounds of the Chocowinity Christmas Parade. Hundreds of parade participants delighted onlookers with a variety of bands, floats and all kinds of vehicles. Classic cars, antique tractors, fire engines, people on horseback, all took part in the kick-off to the Christmas season.

The town of Chocowinity hasn't hosted a Christmas parade in about 20 years, but organizers hope that will change after the success of Saturday's parade. They hope it'll become an annual event for Chocowinity.
