While the weather outside was cold, but not frightful, the community of Newcomerstown celebrated the Christmas spirit with its annual parade down River Street and Main Street. Hosted by the Newcomerstown Chamber of Commerce, the parade included a number of queens from local festival, the Newcomerstown High School Band, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, vehicles from Jim’s Towing, local emergency vehicles, the Newcomerstown Veterans Honor Guard and, of course, a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus and several elves.
