This home movie segment captures the 1958 Dallas Retail Merchants Association Christmas Parade, featuring comedian and television host Herb Shriner. The floats depict holiday scenes like the nativity and Santa’s workshop as well as children’s poems such as Humpty Dumpty and the Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe. Santa Claus rides in on his sleigh to close the parade.
