The Festival of Lights Christmas Parade in Moultrie attracted thousands of visitors Thursday night.

The theme was "A Magical Christmas" and most people said they felt it lived up to that title.

There were 70 floats or projects that rolled around the town square under the canopy of lights.  

South Georgians lined the streets to see the parade and listen to the Christmas music.  

A longtime Christmas tradition, that many people in Moultrie are proud to hand down.

"I have a little 22-month-old little girl, and so this is a new tradition that we are wanting to start. Really come to see the lights and just be a part of the community," said Britt Demott.

Officials said they believe this is the largest Moultrie parade ever, with the biggest number of people attending.

WALB would like to thank all the South Georgians who came out to watch Melissa Hodges and Jim Wallace broadcast our 5:30 newscast from Moultrie.  We got to meet a lot of new friends before and during the parade, and we wanted to say thank you and Merry Christmas.
