Some families came great distances to see the procession, as they noted that the variance of what is in the parade is one of the main draws to the event.

A strange group of shadows were produced by the leaders of the Rotonda West Christmas Parade in Florida, as two marching bands, clowns, horses and used John Deere tractors were in the front of the procession on a sunny Saturday afternoon, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

Some families came great distances to see the procession, as they noted that the variance of what is in the parade is one of the main draws to the event.

"It will be worth it. It always is," Larry and Carol Ambrose told the news source. "I hear it, they're coming," Carol shouted as she heard the floats and engines arriving.

The five-mile route that the parade took through the Florida town allowed for residents to set up blankets and lawn chairs throughout the area. Local food and fare were scattered around the center of Rotonda, as vendors hoped to capitalize on the large number of attendees, according to the Herald-Tribune.

Rotonda is a small and peaceful community located in southwest Florida. The parade brings visitors from around the state to celebrate Christmas each year, according to the town's website.
