Faces of the 2018 Morgantown Christmas Parade
A one-day delay didn't seem to dampen holiday spirits last weekend as a large crowd lined various city streets to watch the annual Morgantown Christmas Parade. The event, which is sponsored by the Morgantown-Butler County Chamber of Commerce, was moved to Sunday at 3 p.m. due to rainy weather on Saturday.
With many floats, pageant winners, decorated vehicles, classic cars and trucks, a few horses, local school bands, and Santa Claus in attendance, the parade proved once again to be a crowd favorite. Participants were announced over the city's loud speakers and plenty of traditional Christmas music was also featured.
Howard (Droopy) and Peggy Drake, longtime business owners in Morgantown (Drake's Farm Service) served as Grand Marshals for the 2018 parade.
Drake's Farm Service won first place in the float division (Gingerbread); second place went to the BCMS Boys' Basketball team (Goldilocks & Bears); and the Butler County ATC took third place (Whoville).
Aberdeen Baptist Church took first place in the church division.
