Another Sanford Christmas Parade — put on annually by the Central Carolina Jaycees — has come and gone, and this year’s event benefited from a strong opening (parade marshal Britton Buchanan), a strong closing (Santa Claus led by Clydesdale horses) and tons of floats, trucks, bands, fire engines and other various vehicles in between.

The weather wasn’t bad either.

Buchanan posted a live video from the parade tonight (below), and The Rant took a floatload of pictures (also below). Click photos for larger versions and scroll to your heart’s content.
