The city of Bridgeport kicked off the holiday season with its annual Christmas parade Saturday morning.
Hundreds of residents lined the streets to see city officials, local businesses, and even Santa Claus himself march down Main Street. Kids in attendance were treated to candy that was handed out by parade marchers.
5 News was represented at the 2013 parade. Daybreak and Midday anchors Matt Heckel and Brittany Hoke, along with meteorologist Pierce Legeion, joined the festivities.
The parade is held in downtown Bridgeport every year.
