TULSA COUNTY, Oklahoma -- Several Green Country towns celebrated the holiday season with Christmas parades on Saturday. Owasso, Glenpool and Oologah residents are some of the Oklahomans who suited up in their holiday best to march down Main Street full of holiday cheer.

Owasso's theme this year was a "Rock N' Christmas." Saturday morning saw bands, horses, floats and – of course - Shriners in funny cars keeping the beat. News On 6 anchor Craig Day was on hand to help emcee the Owasso parade.
