NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR - Sunday's mild temperatures and sun meant the North Little Rock Christmas parade could go off without a hitch. Last weekend's rain forced parade planners to postpone the festivities until this weekend which ended up working out for everyone, including Santa.
"It's just part of Arkansas, you see all these all over the state, and it's a good way just to get in the holiday spirit," says Boy Scout leader Scott Adams.
"I'm actually in the military myself, so I really enjoyed seeing the military part of it aspect of it and the youth challenge, and all of that so I really enjoyed that part of it. And of course, they like the animals, so when they see the horses and the dogs, they're definitely going to come out," says Deonte Pryor who brought his family to the parade.
People lined the streets of North Little Rock Sunday catching candy and hoping to catch a glimpse of Santa. Andy Peaks brought his little sister to the parade.
"Going and getting the candy from the cars, got to keep her away from it," says Peaks about his sister's favorite parts of the parade.
Andy Orr brought his son.
"Oh, it's incredible. It's been great for the community to see everybody out having a great time," says Orr.
It was a great time for all,especially when Santa finally made his appearance at the end of the parade.
If you missed Sunday's parade, Clarksville has its big Lighted Boat Parade celebration starting Friday and lasting all next weekend.
Christmas in the Wild at the Little Rock Zoo this coming Saturday is already sold out.
