ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. — Community members lined the streets of downtown Arroyo Grande Sunday for the annual Christmas parade.

This year, parade participants were asked to donate one unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots, a program that helps children in need.

The parade started at Short Street and traveled along Branch Street for about half a mile.

Parade participants included the Rotary Club of Arroyo Grande, Central Coast Poodles, the CHP, and the Boys and Girls Club of San Luis Obispo.

"It's a tradition, our kids look forward to it every year and, if I don't, my kids will hold me to it," said attendee Erica Neuschafer.

The event was hosted by Doc Burnstein's Ice Cream Lab.
