Christmas on Market Street parade celebrates ‘legends, rails and jingle bells’

Willing Workers 4-H Club’s float celebrated Christmas legends.

The Osage City Chamber of Commerce celebrated “Legends, Rails and Jingle Bells” during the annual Christmas on Market Street on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2016. The annual celebration opens the Christmas holiday season in Osage City, with a lighted Christmas parade and lighting of the downtown lights as a finale. Float winners did their part to brighten up the parade with Christmas lights and holiday cheer. Winners were: Willing Workers 4-H Club, first place; Hometown Healthcare, second place; and J.P. Tree Service.

This year’s parade also had an added category for decorated ATVs and golf carts; first place winner was Cameron’s Pumpkin Patch, with second place going to the Jodi Lohmeyer-Stark Agency.

The parade was organized by Cherity Kerns and other volunteers, and announced by Willie Atchison. For more parade photos, visit Osage County News’ photo gallery here.
