Earl Utesch Memorial Lighted Children's Christmas Parade 2012

December 6, 2012
Thousands of people watching the 16th annual Earl Utesch Memorial Lighted Children's Christmas parade Saturday in Le Mars heard people on parade entries proclaim, "Merry Christmas."

The greeting sounded odd to some who packed the 12-block parade route because temperatures were in the mid-40s and there wasn't any snow in the ground.

The Christmas season was evident in one of the first parade entries, Santa and Mrs. Claus, who waved to the crowd from a sleigh.
