The return of the Pomona Christmas Parade to downtown Pomona was on schedule, in spite of the rain. The community came together in wonderful spirit to make all Pomonans proud and bring back a sense of togetherness that will only improve as time goes on. It was the intent of the parade committee to include any group, organization, or individual who wanted to participate. No one was turned away. To all who participated in the parade, thank you for braving the weather and coming out. For all those who viewed the parade, we hope you had a good time. We will be back next year, so mark your calendars for the second Saturday in December. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
