Leland started a new tradition with a kids parade.
Beginning this year, the parade will kick off with a kids parade before the 'Lighting of Trees and Ornaments on Deer Creek.'
Families lined the streets, along the parade route, watching as waving and smiling kids walked-by.
Big Bird, Santa Claus, and Kermit the Frog stopped by as well.
The Lighting of Trees and Ornaments on Deer Creek ceremony kicked off, just after the sunset.
