Many students were looking forward to the annual Lafayette Christmas parade, but were disappointed when the December 1 event was cancelled due to the weather. Mayflower Mill Elementary School Principal Shannon Cauble didn't want that disappointment to linger over the holidays, so she had the school organize its own parade.
About 40 students put on what they planned to wear for the Lafayette Christmas parade and walked the hallways waving to other students, parents and teachers. The students represented scouting, football, dance and cheer groups. The Mayflower Mill Elementary Snow Princess Shanira Dallas and Prince Ian Taylor rode in a make-shift sleigh.
Principal Cauble says the event was one way the students could celebrate their hard work and for the snow prince and princess to be recognized.
