Even though it wasn’t cold enough for coats, gloves and scarves, young and old still turned out in droves to enjoy a winter tradition this past Saturday (Dec. 2) as the annual Lindale Christmas Celebration took place. Youngsters were thrilled by an appearance from the Jolly Old Elf himself, Santa Claus, riding a horse in the annual Lindale Rotary Club Parade. The parade, which featured several decorated and lighted floats, entertained a large contingent lining Highway 69.
