WARREN, Pa. – The holiday season officially got underway in downtown Warren Friday night with the annual Christmas Parade and Walk.

Dozens of vendors and more than 30 parade participants displayed their wares and showed off their holiday spirit for the hundreds who gathered along Liberty Street and Pennsylvania Avenue.

Rewatch the parade:

In a somewhat surprising turn of events, the line to pay a visit to The Grinch in Who-ville (at McKissock Learning) appeared to be longer than that to greet Santa Claus.

Books were also available at the makeshift Who-ville, while the Warren County Chamber of Business and Industry’s mailbox was moved to the NPRC office to allow people to write letters to Santa.
