Barracks Road Shopping Center hosts annual holiday parade

CHARLOTTESVILLE, V.A. (WVIR) - A Charlottesville tradition of more than 50 years brought people together in the holiday spirit Saturday morning.

Barracks Road Shopping Center hosted its family-friendly parade with colorful floats, costumed characters, and other entertainers. For some, it’s a tradition they plan on continuing for their little ones.

“Well we are down here just for the weekend visiting his grandparents, and we thought it would be a good idea to come out to a little parade. he gets free candy so he’s so happy,” Ryan Deneault said.

More than 40 community groups took part in the parade.
