   The village of Brandon brought out its Christmas apparel for the 17th-annual Christmas Parade last week Friday, with this year’s theme of “Ugly Christmas Sweaters.”

   The parade was followed by Supper with Santa at the Brandon-Fairwater Fire Department, where families were packed together, eating homemade soups, listening to live music performances, taking pictures with Santa, buying baked goods and entering tickets for a Christmas raffle.
