MIDLAND, Texas — Everyone brought their Christmas spirit as they lined the parade route for the annual Midland Christmas parade.

I like to see the floats because it has lots of creativity in it and i like to see how they're different," says 9-year-old Scarlett Wolf.

Some brought their spirit earlier than others, "probably since 11 and it was awful we are home be at 4:30 and then I looked at the information online and it said it was at 6:30 and she made us come out here to find a spot it's OK," says one member from the Trevino Family.

 Before all the fun began, parade watchers of all ages told me what they were looking forward to, "I wanna see the lights because it's gonna light up the streets and look really pretty," says Bella Desantiago.

"I'm excited to see the characters. How they dress up and look pretty. How they make their costumes," says Addie Lee.
