ONTARIO - The smiles stretched for blocks along Southwest Fourth Avenue on Saturday, Dec. 4, as the annual Winter Wonderland Parade unfolded.

The parade, put on by the Ontario Area Chamber of Commerce, took the road despite a temperature hovering around freezing and a fog adding a gauzy feel to the event.

But participants marched, sang, danced and even barked along the route. And they had plenty of spectators along the sidewalk. Many were bundled up well against the cold. Others opted to watch through the windshields of their rigs.

And there was no mistaking the draw for most of the kids along the route - abundant candy tossed by the handful and, finally, Santa Claus.
