LELAND -- As Brunswick County continues to grow, so does its annual Christmas parade.
Saturday's festival and parade in Leland were the largest in the town's 14 year history.
Live music filled the parking lot where people gathered to dance, eat, and take in all of the vendors' unique trinkets. Santa Claus even made an appearance.
The United Group president who sponsors the event says he's glad so many families turned out for the day despite the chilly temperatures.
