Downtown Oakdale was filled with the holiday spirit over the weekend, with a socially distanced light parade in the late afternoon and a market event from mid-afternoon to early evening. In addition to crossing some items off the Christmas shopping list and buying some sweet treats to eat, families were able to interact with animals at a petting zoo. Meanwhile, parade entries from classic pick-ups, flatbed trailers, motorcycles and horses were all festively decorated as they “cruised” a route from Poplar Street to the downtown area, spreading Christmas cheer with spectators and the community.
