Cold doesn’t put freeze on fun

HOLTS SUMMIT, Mo. — Saturday was a cold day here, and a festive one, too.
Early in the afternoon, cars and truck decorated with Christmas lights, and scenes from Santa’s workshop lined the shoulders of Center Street, their drivers rushing to make final adjustments or huddling inside to keep warm.
Then, at 2 p.m., the traffic on the exits leading off U.S. Highway 54 came to a stop and the floats and trailers rumbled forward, the town’s police chief leading the floats through the center of town, along with the Jefferson City High School Marching Jay band.
