SLO celebrates season with 45th annual Holiday Parade

San Luis Obispo rang in the season with its 45th annual Holiday Parade on Friday night.

This year’s parade theme was California Dreamin’: “Celebrate the sun, the wine, the beach, and the sights.”

The parade featured colorful floats, dancers, marching bands and, of course, a visit from Santa himself.

Judges handed out awards for entries in the categories of most entertaining, most creative and best in theme.
