On Saturday, Dec. 1, a large crowd filled Main Street in Cedaredge to witness the annual Parade of Lights. While the morning flurries were mostly melted, the good news of snow seemed to enhance the Christmas spirit of the evening.

Before the main event of floats and Santa, visitors had plenty to do. The Cedaredge Community United Methodist Church served chili and a baked potato bar beforehand from 4 to 7 p.m. Pioneer Town Museum hosted free Christmas concerts at the Chapel of the Cross at 4 p.m. before the parade and after at 7 p.m.

Dozens of cookies and cups of cider were devoured at Town Hall courtesy of town officials. On the porch of the Chamber of Commerce the Cedaredge Community Band warmed the air with Christmas classics.

At 6 p.m. the parade began with bright lights and siren sounds. Community floats, horses, bouncing vehicles and even Surface Creek Animal Shelter pets featured decor themed along the lines of "Christmas in Candyland."

Service vehicles such as ambulances, police vehicles and fire trucks were even decorated to celebrate the holiday season. The Cedaredge High School Marching Band played well despite the chilly temps.

After the parade a long line of eager children filled the Grand Mesa Arts & Events Center. While chatting with Santa, Reve Portraits took complimentary photos and gifts were passed out thanks to Stacy's on Main.
