BOONE − Pleasant, sunny weather greeted large crowds at the 2015 Downtown Boone Christmas Parade on Dec. 5. The parade marched down King Street at 11 a.m. from the Watauga County Courthouse towards Appalachian State University's Legends parking lot. 

Following the parade was a celebration at the Watauga County Public Library, where kids had the chance to get their picture taken with Santa Claus. For more photos, visit
