What an awesome parade, two high school bands, thirteen scout troops, and a variety of other groups and organizations made their way down Main St in Kennesaw, Saturday December 3. The Bright Side Newspaper was honored to be one of the judges, and we would like to share some photos of the winners and others. Santa (pictured above) arrived by The Holiday Trackless Train – rather fitting since part of our museum is dedicated to the railroad and locomotive industry.
