Crowd enjoys Christmas parade

The Town of Keysville had its annual Christmas Parade on Friday, Dec. 6.

This year’s Christmas Parade Grand Marshal was 6-year-old Carson Allen McCall.

McCall was diagnosed with Krabbe Disease, a rare genetic disorder at the age of three, but continues to face each day with a smile. During the parade, Keysville Mayor Steven Morris presented McCall with a plaque honoring him as Grand Marshall.
