Tens of thousands of people attended Plano's annual Christmas Parade.

The Early Lions Club puts on the annual event.

"It's a tradition in Plano we think is very special that we enjoy doing every year," resident Mark Sims said. "The kids look forward to it. We get doughnuts and hot chocolate."

The marching bands of all nine Plano high schools performed in the parade, which had dozens of floats from civic groups and churches. Boy Scouts and other groups handed out candy to children.

The Lions say 4,200 people were in the parade.

Before the parade, which NBC 5 sponsors, the Lions held a pancake breakfast with Santa Clause where people donated canned goods to the Plano Food Pantries.
