The Parade kicked off around 5 p.m. More than more than 25 floats took the streets in the downtown area.
Following the parade, families got to enjoy crafts, games, and hot chocolate at City Hall. Santa Claus was also there spreading Christmas cheer, where kids got to visit and take pictures.
“My favorite part is spending time with family,” said Nathan Nakamura, Rogue Valley resident. “It gives everyone something to check out and watch and have a good time without having to spend a whole lot of money.”
The event is put on by Central Point Parks and Recreation every year.
