Teens from Macon County Library worked, had a lot of fun, and won! The theme for this year’s parade was Santa’s Workshop/Toyland. Guided by library staff member Ellen Agee, the teens created a life size jack-in-the-box and a rolling wooden horse. Colorful costumes completed the festive holiday float.
Library staff member Doris McConnell watched the parade with her young granddaughter and shared her view from the sidewalk, “Several years since I had been able to go to the parade. Took my granddaughter with me; we both enjoyed it in spite of the smoke. It lasted about an hour and 15 minutes, a great variety of entries. The parade was, most appropriately, led by, fire departments from different areas. We were glad for the opportunity to give them a ‘Thumbs Up and Thank You’. Was particularly proud of the MCPL float; all involved did a great job!”
