Throngs of residents and visitors lined Tooele City’s Vine Street on Saturday morning to watch the Tooele County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism’s annual Santa Parade.
Under sunny, yet chilly skies, the parade featured marching bands, local businesses, local royalty, officials and more. It began at 50 West on Vine and continued west to Tooele Boulevard and ended at Tooele Technical College.
After the parade, Santa moved inside Tooele Tech and visited with hundreds of children who shared their Christmas wish lists with him. Children enjoyed cookies and hot chocolate served by Tooele County Dairy Princess royalty. Local photographer Daniel Pacheco photographed all of the children and offered the digital photos to the families for free.
