Thousands attended Sunday's Greer Jaycees Christmas parade on a near-perfect day with clear blue skies, temperatures in the 60s. The crowd, city officials estimated, was one of the biggest in years and arguably one of the best attended.
More than 100 units, led by the family of Pfc. Adam Ross as grand marshall, and family of Sgt. Channing "Bo" Hicks, led the over 100-unit parade. Ross (July 24) and Hicks (No. 16) were killed in action in Afghanistan.
