The Virden Legion stepped up and saved the Virden Santa Parade when it looked like there wouldn't be one this year. And the community rallied to make it a good one, with floats, thrown candy, and the sounds of "Merry Christmas" in the air.
Cody Mulligan, Beth McConnell, bring their daughter Willow to her first ever parade along with Luna the rescue dog.
This Elkhorn bunch decided to make it a tailgate party with pizza and hot chocolate while they waited for the parade.
No chance of getting chilled, this Reston family came prepared and in high spirits.
