PHOTOS: Nyssa rings in the Christmas season with unique holiday parade

The Grinch (Nyssa’s Naomi Rich) and his two helpers – Hailey and Alyssa Harnden – wave at a long line of passing cars at the Nyssa Nite Lite Parade. The drive-thru event was held Saturday, Dec. 5. Covid restrictions made a traditional parade impossible this year but officials and Nyssa residents decided to host a drive-thru event. As part of the event, floats were parked alongside Main Street, allowing cars and trucks to drive by and see the Christmas decorations.
