Peer­ing out from a gin­ger­bread house are, from left, Joey Rear­don, Avery Car­roll and Rae­gan An­drews. The float was made by the Rid­dles and Rhymes Day­care Cen­tre. It won Best Non-Com­mer­cial Float. With his heart grown three sizes, even the Grinch was feel­ing fes­tive, throw­ing candy canes from his perch aboard the hy­dro truck.

The St. An­thony Christ­mas Pa­rade was the best it has been in a long time.

The pa­rade, put off each year by the St. An­thony Lions Club, was held on Satur­day, Dec. 8 and was in mem­ory of Donny Pow­ell.

St. An­thony Lions Club pres­i­dent Cyril Sim­monds says the pa­rade got its best par­tic­i­pa­tion in many years, with ap­prox­i­mately 15 floats par­tic­i­pat­ing.

He be­lieves this was helped by at least three floats who paid trib­ute to Donny Pow­ell, who passed away ear­lier this fall.

Pow­ell was a big sup­porter of the pa­rade all through the years.

Sim­monds wished to thank all the par­tic­i­pants and the en­tire com­mu­nity for its help in pulling off the event.
