Panama City Beach kicked off their annual Christmas Parade at 5 pm Saturday evening and there was plenty of cheer at Pier Park.
Dozens of organizations participated while hundreds of residents lined the streets.
Kids of all ages were treated to music from local marching bands and candy from groups in the parade, including some familiar faces from News Channel 7.
The parade wound through the streets of Pier Park where kids waited patiently for the star attraction - Santa Claus. He came riding through at the very end on a Panama City Beach fire truck.
