The show must go on: Bedford Christmas Parade saved by crowd members

Local News

BEDFORD, Va. (WFXR) — This year’s Bedford Christmas Parade became an interactive experience for several bystanders as they kept the parade going despite some technical difficulties.

Over the course of the parade, the jeep from Johnson Health Center lost its transmission. Fortunately, members of the crowd ran out onto the street to push the “Hillbilly Response Unit” up the hill and continue the festivities.

As said in the Facebook post by Bedford County Photography, this is “what small town living is like.”
