ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Thousands of people were downtown Saturday for the Annual Celebration of Lights Christmas parade.

This year's theme was the twelve days of Christmas.

The festivities kicked off at 5 p.m. with some live music. At 6 p.m. the parade started with the singing of the National Anthem.

Members of the Marine Corps Logistics Base presented the colors. There was about a 100 entries in this years parade.

"The kids enjoy watching everyone perform and being with family and watching the community come together and having a good night," says Dustin Kincade, a Lee County resident.

WALB's Karla Heath Sands and Chris Zaleman were this year's hosts.
