Down Home Christmas Celebration

The Christmas season celebrations continued in Northern Cambria on Saturday with a parade in the Spangler area.

This store owner picked a good day to have the Grand Opening with folks in town to attend the festivities.

After filling up with petrol this hot rodder is heading over to the Bi-Lo parking lot for the parade line-up.

This girl portrayed the Virgin Mary carrying Baby Jesus. Joseph is on the other side, which explains the pink boot and third hand you see in this shot.

Riding in this snazzy coach is Miss Delaware, Heather Lehman, along with a young fan and another princess. Originally from Cambria County, Heather came back to participate in the annual Christmas parade at the request of her friend, Ron Weaver, one of the parade organizers.
