The Delaware County Bank sign on Sandusky Street said the temperature was 32 degrees Sunday afternoon. It seemed not to matter to the people who marched in the annual Delaware Christmas Parade nor to the spectators who lined the streets. Shown here is a group from the Delaware County Library getting into the Christmas spirit.
As the horse-drawn carriage approached, it revealed a red-gloved hand waving out to the youngsters. The young eyes began to widen as they realized that Santa and Mrs. Claus were the ones waving back at them from inside.
As Santa and Mrs. Claus’ carriage passed by Clarissa Russell’s home on Sandusky Street she waved to them with a wide-eyed wonderful delight from her front row seat inside the warm house.
