SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Crowds gathered in downtown today for a celebration of the holiday season the 2019 Christmas Parade.
Photojournalist Mike Pitts talked to a few of the people who showed up to find out why it’s special to them.
Claire Ferlita, who was watching the Christmas Parade, said she likes the community and the music.
“We love the floats. Really just the whole experience, getting your coffee, the cold weather and Christmas time,” Ferlita said.
The parade sure looked fun, but it was cold out there today!
