McKeesport opened the 2022 holiday season with the community's 57th annual Salute to Santa Parade.
The City of McKeesport kicked off the holiday season with the 57th annual Salute to Santa Parade.
Despite cold, blustery weather, families lined Fifth Avenue to celebrate the start of the holidays with all the parade’s participating organizations. This year, Lieutenant Governor-elect Austin Davis served as the parade’s grand marshal. And, of course, the parade closed with Santa Claus riding down Fifth Avenue on McKeesport’s ladder truck.
Children also had a chance to meet Santa at the Palisades during a lunch prepared by the McKeesport Lions Club.
