The 17th Annual Christmas Parade of the Ozarks made its way through Springdale on Saturday night. Streets were decked and Christmas music filled the air.
For many in Springdale, the holiday spirit comes alive amidst the twinkling lights and rolling parade.
"It's just something for the kids. I grew up in Springdale and I just believe it's something we need to do... It's going to be one of the largest we've ever had," said event organizer Rick Culver.
57 floats were signed up and of course the holiday cheer was topped off with a special appearance by Santa Claus himself.
