The Natchez, Mississippi Christmas Parade was a display of colors, farm equipment and several tributes to local children's sports teams, according to the Natchez Democrat.
The news source reported that the local children who were standing on the side of the street along the parade route were dwarfed by several large floats, the many colorfully dressed mascots and green and yellow John Deere tractors. The farm equipment elicited a round of cheers from the spectators, as the machines barreled down Carter Street.
"The wheels are taller than Daddy," 16-year-old Karlie Lajuanie told the Democrat.
The vintage tractors and antique cars created a stir among the local children, as the youngsters watched the various models cruise through the otherwise familiar streets. Horses followed the procession, and the riders did their best to prevent the animals from getting spooked by the engines, according to the news source.
The parade is held annually in Natchez, as residents of this town hold a series of events during the winter holidays to celebrate the history of the area, according to the town's website.
