Max Williams visits with Santa Claus during a holiday, fun-filled event last Saturday in Mexico.

“There’s No Place Like Home,” was the theme for this year’s Mexico Chamber of Commerce Holiday Parade.
The parade began with Mexico Public Safety Department leading off followed by the Mexico Dixie Gray Band.
Grand Marshals Miss Missouri Katelyn Lewis and City of Mexico Mayor Chris Miller rode in a convertible classic chevy enjoying the beautiful weather waving to the gathered onlookers.
Many other entries followed including the VFW Audrain County Post No. 3772 riding for “Wreaths across America.” Among other entries were M&M Golf Cars of M&M Vehicle Corp. featuring Santa and his elves, which was the overall winner of the parade judging. Job Finders hosted a float of the “Wizard of Oz” that took first place. St. Brendan School’s float showing the nativity took second place.
