The annual Christmas parade may have had its share of troubles getting started, but it turned out to be a great success at its conclusion.
The 2013 Orange Jaycees Annual Christmas Parade was rescued by The Kiwanis Club of Orange and, after a postponement and a cancellation, was rescheduled for Dec. 19 and had another well attended event.
