Marquette welcomes Santa, holiday spirit

Santa waves and rings bells for the children during the parade in Marquette.

Spectators lined Third Street in Marquette Friday to watch the ninth annual Winter Snow Fun Holiday Parade. Marquette post office staffers were on hand during the parade to collect letters to Santa from kids. Following the parade was the city’s 45th annual tree lighting and photos with Santa Claus at the Marquette Commons. There was also a performance by the Marquette Senior High School Redmen Chorale, pony rides and hot chocolate. Left: Santa waves and rings bells for the children during the parade in Marquette.
