With warm temperatures outside, hundreds of people lined Biddle for the annual tradition on Saturday.
After Friday night's annual Wyandotte tree lighting ceremony, hundreds of people lined Biddle on Saturday to keep the festive mood going. The city's Christmas Parade strolled down Biddle, from Ford to Eureka. Those who lined the sidewalks were treated to many displays, such as clowns, floats and marching bands. As he does every year, Santa appeared at the end of the parade, putting smiles on the faces of all the good little boys and girls in the crowd. Longtime Wyandotte business owner Joe Daly of Daly Merritt, Inc. was the grand marshal of this year’s parade. Did you attend the parade? If so, you can upload your own photos by using the link above.
