The snow and frigid temperatures couldn't stop the Christmas Parade from going on.

FOX23 was there to talk to several people who braved the cold to come watch the parade.

In years past, people have lined the streets to watch the floats travel down the roads. This year, however, more people camped out in their cars, watching from the parking lots.

The Tulsa Hills Parade wasn't long, but it was long enough in the bitterly cold temperatures.

Some people like the Koon family ventured out.

They wanted to watch the floats and meet the city's heroes.

The Koon's told FOX23 that this was their daughter's first Christmas parade.

Jennifer Nichols braved the cold for her 4-year-old son.

"It was pretty cold, but we managed," Jennifer Nichols said. "I had to do it for him."

Jennifer Nichols told FOX23 that despite the temperatures, it was worth it.

Cooper Nichols told FOX23 he had a great time.

"My favorite part was the trash truck!"

Even though it was frigid at the parade tonight, everyone here seemed to be having fun.
