Despite cold temperatures made a little chillier with occasional wind gusts, hundreds of area residents gathered along Bethune’s main street for the town’s second annual Christmas parade. Palpable pride and excitement seemed to fill the air as people, dressed for the weather, turned out to celebrate the holidays and cheer on the band, floats, sports cars, horses, tractors and marchers which queued up to march from one end of town to the other. Timrod Baptist Church set up a booth near the Discount Food Grocery Store and gave away hot dogs, biscuits, hot drinks and water to passers-by.
