Scenes from the 2013 Christmas Parade & Hot Chocolate Night


Mother Nature brought warmer wintertime temperatures for this year’s Christmas parade and Hot Chocolate Night. The Christmas parade, sponsored by the Adrian Chamber of Commerce, was a huge success with many entries making their way down Main Street. After the parade, Santa made is way to Frontier Village for the longtime tradition of Hot Chocolate Night, hosted by the Western Missouri Antique Tractor and Machinery Association. Kids shared their Christmas wishes with Santa and received a full-size candy bar and an apple from the Adrian Lions Club. The Christmas train and carriage rides were available, and the WMAT&MA Ladies Auxillary provided hot chocolate and cookies for everyone.
