It turns out you can get a pretty big pair of antlers on a pretty small car.

Jefferson City residents who turned out for the Jaycees 71st annual Christmas parade Saturday evening saw just that as a vehicle driven by Jefferson City resident Leroy DelesDernier rolled by, with "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" piping from its speakers on repeat and volunteers rushing to hand out candy from its trunk and keep up with the rolling car.

It was just one of dozens of floats and decked-out cars that graced the streets of downtown in the Jaycees' parade Saturday night.
