Hundreds show up for annual 'Bridge to Wonderland' parade in Chippewa Falls


Chippewa Falls (WQOW) -- Hundreds of people packed the streets of downtown Chippewa Falls Saturday night for the annual Bridge to Wonderland parade. 

It's a holiday tradition that's lit up the night for 28 years.

This year's theme was 'Christmas in Toyland' and some floats went all out. The News 18 team was, of course, in on the fun for another year, and we wanted to know what people thought about the seasonal celebration. 

"Coming to the parade really gets us into the Christmas season and gets the kids excited for Christmas," Kayla Proffitt of Chippewa Falls said. 

"You meet a lot of different people when you're down here. A lot of people come from different areas and you talk to them, and you know, it's just nice to meet different people," Brad O'Donnell told News 18. 

Every year more than 50 floats make the trip down Bridge Street for the parade. Though people told News 18 that this year there seemed to be more entries than ever before.
