The Christmas season officially kicked off in Sylvania Thursday as Santa and scouts led the way for the annual Christmas Parade. Hundreds lined the streets to see youngsters from schools and church organizations wind their way around the square. Vendors were also present to show visitors what is available for the holiday season.
"We have got folks here from all over the county and from other cities too. Anytime we can get people to our downtown, we love it," said Sylvania Mayor Margaret Evans.
The evening included Christmas carols as well as snow on the hill for a little sledding.
