Holiday Festival --parade and treelighting -- a little wet but loads of fun
Sherwood Boulevard was filled with the Maid Marian Court, a band, goats led by their owners, several floats, and, of course, Santa Claus as the annual Robin Hood Holiday Festival parade kicked into high gear Dec. 2.
The parade made its way to Old Town Sherwood where choirs serenaded the crowd gathered for the annual tree lighting held at Cannery Square Plaza.
The plaza was also filled with loads of activities including a tent for children to visit with Santa and a live Nativity scene compliments of children from St. Paul's Lutheran Church.
Meanwhile, residents enjoyed free hotdogs, cookies, coffee, hot cider and other goodies, compliments of local groups and merchants.
A short time later, the switch was thrown to city's Christmas tree was lit to cheers from young and old alike.
