Hartford, WI – The annual Hartford Christmas Parade stepped off without a hitch on Saturday. Neighbors lined Main Street dressed in wool hats, jackets and some sported umbrellas. Temps were in the low 40s with a brisk wind and occasional rainfall.
Santa arrived earlier in the day delivered by a Soo Line engine. He took letters from children and posed for photos all while tucked neatly inside an orange caboose.
Thanks to the broadcast sponsors including: Scoop DeVille, The Pour House, Birds on Deck and Home Improvements, Basal Layer, John’s Hobbies, Faith & Giggles, The Perc Place, and the Jack Russell Memorial Library.
