Participants excited about local parade

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Families braved the cold for the annual Whitehaven Christmas parade.

The parade is put on every year by the Academy for Youth Empowerment.

The route started at the Southland Mall and headed down Elvis Presley Boulevard.

One family we talked to said they were excited to come out and get a chance to see Santa.

"Yeah, they were excited this morning. They were worried about the candy more than anything," stated mother Marquita Pope.

The parade was followed up by a free concert at Abundant Grace Saturday afternoon.
