Crowds lined the streets in downtown Tyler on Thursday for the annual Rotary Club Christmas .

There were over 121 entries in this years, parade making it one of the largest ever.

The parade also lasted longer than usual due to a unexpected train that ended up blocking the parade route for a period of time.

Eventually, families were able to gather in T.B. Butler Fountain Square to sing Christmas carols and watch the 32nd annual City of Tyler Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
