Crowds of people in Beckley gathered Saturday afternoon for the city's annual Christmas parade.
Music, costumes and candy filled the streets. The parade's theme this year was "The Twelve Days of Christmas." Beckley native Patrick Williams said he goes to the parade almost every year and participated in it growing up. "I'm just glad the tradition has kept up," he said.
Floats in the parade competed for recognition in several categories.
