An estimated 7,000 people flocked to downtown Warrenton for Friday night’s annual Christmas parade.

Eighty-five entries completed the route down Main Street on a clear, crisp and cool evening.

All three local high school bands — Fauquier, Kettle Run and Liberty — joined the festivities. Local businesses, schools, scout groups, nonprofit organizations and churches also prepared brightly-lighted floats.

Santa Claus brought up the rear before a finale of fireworks over Old Town.

The judges selected these winners:

• Clarke W. Griswold Award: Fauquier County Department of Environmental Service

• Most Original: Fauquier High School

• Judges’ Choice: Warrenton Cub Scout Pack 1166
