Liberty City is celebrating the Christmas season during their annual Christmas parade.

People lined up along Old Highway 135 to watch the parade. First responders, local officials, the Sabine High School Band and other guests paraded through the city.

Many kids ran to catch candy being thrown during the event. Families there tell us the parade helps them get into the Christmas spirit.

"This is my son's first Christmas parade," Kristen Obier says."This parade is something we enjoy as a family."

With the countdown to Christmas only 22 days away, kids say they can't wait for Santa.
