Ishpeming’s parade kicks off the holiday season

ISHPEMING — It was a small crowd in Ishpeming Friday for the city’s annual Christmas Parade, but that did not stop residents from showing their holiday spirit.

The parade was a fun way to kick off the holiday season, with fire trucks that were decked out in Christmas lights as the crowd lined Main Street.

There was an appearance by a snowman and Snoopy as people passed out candy to kids.

After the parade, kids were able to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus and enjoy a tree lighting.
