A youngster tries to catch “snow” in his mouth as a float made by the Sedalia Parks and Recreation Department drives down South Ohio Avenue Friday night during the annual Sedalia Area Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade. The parade was hosted for the first time in years on Friday evening instead of Saturday morning. Although the night was cold, crowds lined downtown.

The Sedalia Area Chamber of Commerce has announced the winners of the Christmas Parade hosted Friday night in downtown Sedalia.
