A Toyland Christmas

A Toyland Christmas
By Katie Lamers

The Village of Little Chute was lined with spectators for the annual Christmas parade. The weather was chilly, but that didn’t stop the families from coming to see the decorated floats and community members. The parade has always brought excitement for the kids, seeing the intricate floats and getting candy tossed at you. It has always been a staple event in the community.

The parade was kicked off and organized by the Kiwanis Club; they introduced this year’s theme as “A Toyland Christmas.” From there the parade brought carolers that sang a classical Christmas tune. The floats rolled through catching everyone's eyes with the blinking lights and cool designs.The kids were enthralled when they got candy thrown towards them; the excitement was shown clearly on their faces.Everywhere you looked kids were running all over trying to get every last piece. The major float that will stick in people's minds is the big truck that carried Santa and Mrs.Claus; it captured everyone's attention with the bright lights and enormous star on the side. Another memorable float was the gingerbread house constructed by the Little Chute Career Pathway Academy.
Seniors Hannah Dornfeld and Tommy Mlodzik
were instrumental in organizing this float.

If you’ve never been to the parade, next year you might want to consider attending. It gives you a sense of belonging to the community and makes you appreciate the holidays and what they really stand for.
