A large crowd braved chilly temperatures to watch Saturday’s Gloucester Citizen’s Christmas and Holiday Parade along Main Street. Nearly 100 entries took part in the parade, from civic and school groups to businessess, police, fire and rescue, with throngs of spectators lining the road.

This year’s parade was one of the best ones yet, according to Denise Carter, spcial events coordinator for the Gloucester Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department. Photos by Quinton Sheppard
