Big crowds come out for Winter Park's 70th annual Ye Old Hometown Christmas Parade

The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce hosted the 70th annual Winter Park Ye Olde Hometown Christmas Parade on Saturday. The FOX 35 Storm Team Thunder Truck rolled along Park Avenue as part of the parade.

The event is the oldest continuous holiday parade in Central Florida. More than 80 organizations participate, including marching bands, local police and fire departments, scouting groups, floats, local dignitaries and, of course, Santa Claus.

The parade traveled along Park Avenue and continued onto New England Avenue, ending at Hannibal Square.

Big crowds gathered early as the parade got underway at 9 a.m.
