For some, it may very well have felt like a night at the North Pole - winter-y temperatures and plenty of snowfall set the scene for the 2015 Battle Creek Christmas Parade on Saturday.

On the order of 8-12 inches of new snow fell on Battle Creek in the hours leading up to the parade, giving attendees a festive feeling as more than 80 entries in the parade made their way down Michigan Avenue.

Coming up Monday evening, November 30, WBCK's Renk and Nate Adams will participate in the 51st Annual Christmas Parade in Marshall. The event steps off at 7 p.m. that night in downtown Marshall and features more than 100 entries.
