The weather outside on Dec. 17 was beautiful for a parade and a marching band as the Donaldsonville Christmas parade rolled through the city.

This year’s theme was "Christmas through a child’s eye.” Many lined the streets to enjoy the floats, dancers, and to hear the Donaldsonville High School marching band play tunes of season.
