Santa waves to the crowd, top, as he exits his horse-drawn carriage at the end of Saturday's A Christmas Carroll Parade. Santa greeted area youngsters, posed for photos and gave out hugs and candy following the parade. A make-it-and-take-it workshop was held at the Carroll County Public Library as part the day's events. McKenzie Hearn and her aunt, Amanda Herbert, bottom, create an ornament during the workshop. Phyllis Leach was the winner of the annual Visions of Sugar Plums bake-off contest. She was the recipient of an electric range from McNeal's Trustworthy Hardware in Carrollton.
