Auburn officially welcomed the holiday season on Saturday with a festive and fun children's parade, followed by community caroling and the lighting of the City Hall Christmas Tree.

Washington Elementary hosted a Snack and Craft event prior to the downtown parade. It was an opportunity for families to create fun holiday gingerbread houses and ornaments.
