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.
