The 26th Annual Schochoh Christmas Parade started on time and was a huge success on Sunday, December 6.

At the 2pm scheduled beginning time, a traditional prayer was given expressing gratitude for the community and the success of the parade. Shortly thereafter, the line of floats, bands, and neighbors began.

In its 26 year history the parade has been held in the good and bad weather. But this day, near 60 degrees, no wind, and lots of warming sunshine, was unaffected in any negative way by conditions.

A crowd of an estimated few hundred lined the parade route. And businesses and neighbors allowed grateful parade-goers to park in fields and large yards all along the route.

This year’s Grand Marshals, Keith and Tonya Wilson, followed the colors and ROTC band in their trolley car, as the parade go underway. Several local Church groups were represented. A couple dozen classic and restored cars passed by the audience. Most all participants in the parade tossed candy to the many children along the route.

Finally, the guests of honor, Santa and Mrs. Santa, appeared near the end of the parade. Squeals of delight from the kids hoping to be on the “good list” met the Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

As the parade finished, the lively chatter of neighbor wishing Merry Christmas to fellow neighbor could be heard.

The tradition completed for this season, the Logan County area can now say Christmas-time is here.
