Folks braved the cold weather for Tulsa's Christmas Parade on Saturday and News On 6's own Craig Day, Lori Fullbright and Travis Meyer were all there.

The parade went down Olympia Avenue and featured more than two dozen floats this year.

Despite the sub-freezing temperatures, people made their way out onto the street to see the parade.

"Just head on out," said parade goer Jeff Tatum, who brought his family to see the parade. "There's really not a lot to prepare for - we're just excited to be out here."

Families lined the streets and tailgated the parade in their cars to stay warm.

"Santa Claus" even a paid an early visit to Tulsa, and told us he's grateful people turned out despite the bad winter weather.

"I'm really glad that they came out because we're to have a wonderful Christmas this year," he said.

On December 14, the Tulsa Downtown Holiday Parade of Lights starts at 6 p.m. and begins at Fourth Street and Elgin Avenue.
