SJNT Christmas Parade 004

SJNT staff

SHEPHERD — The annual Shepherd community Christmas event on Saturday was well-attended and well-supported, organizers said.

It was marred, however, by an accident during the parade that left a child injured.

After the parade, the spectators were treated to a Christmas maze and a live Nativity scene, complete with narration and songs.

During the day, booths with vendors and the Kris Kringle Cornhole Tournament were held at the Community Center, and two local authors came and spoke about their work.

Organizer and Chamber President Yvonne Cones said it was a typical turnout, one where she spent a “ton of money.”

“The whole thing was very good,” she said.
