New Carlisle welcomed another holiday season with its annual Christmas in New Carlisle celebration on Sunday, December 1.
The event, organized by Discover New Carlisle, featured a craft show at the fire station and the traditional lighted parade down Michigan Street.
Despite the rain, residents lined the street to see floats representing various community organizations, local businesses, sports teams, and school clubs.
Santa Claus made his way through town not on a sleigh, but atop a New Carlisle firetruck. As Santa passed the Town Hall, the town Christmas tree was illuminated to the delight of the crowd. After the parade, the community gathered for cookies and hot cocoa at the fire station.
All funds raised by Christmas in New Carlisle go toward the town's holiday decorations.
