PEORIA (WEEK) - Peoria welcomed in the Christmas spirit Friday morning with the 134th annual Santa Claus Parade.

Downtown Peoria was filled with gumdrops and candy canes.

2021 was themed “A Candyland Christmas”.

Floats were decorated with Christmas treats and the streets were full of music. The Richwoods High School marching band played some tunes.

In 2020, the parade was drive-thru style due to COVID-19. In 2021, America’s longest running parade was able to go on as usual.

The most creative floats were awarded, and of course Santa Claus came through and waved to all the families.

“This is our first year at the Santa Claus parade and we’re just really happy to be here,” a young parade goer said.

The parade route was changed following the events in Waukesha WI.
