Brittany Clopper stood in front of her childhood home in Smithsburg watching Santa parade by on an antique fire engine. The 24-year-old, who now lives in Cascade with her husband, Ben, held her daughter, Remie, 2, in her arms. “She wanted to see Santa,” Clopper said. Clopper remembers watching parades pass her house as a girl and said it was nice to share the tradition with her own child. “We still know a lot of people in the parade,” she said. “It's a small-town thing.” The parade featuring Old St. Nick was one part of the Smithsburg Hometown Christmas celebration Friday and Saturday at various locations throughout the town.

Homecoming queens from high schools throughout Washington County gathered Saturday afternoon at the Alsatia Club before Saturday night's Mummers Parade. Through the luck of the draw, one of them would be named queen of the parade. Chuck Metz, chairman of club's Princesses and Queens Committee, explained the process. “This is the way we pick. We have the same number of necklaces as girls. They are all identical. But they all say 'Alsatia Mummers Parade Princess,' and only one says 'Queen,'” he said.

After its first cancellation since World War II, the Alsatia Mummers Parade on Saturday night appeared not to have missed a beat as thousands of participants marched, danced and rode past thousands more spectators. About 200 units ranging from floats with a few people to school bands with scores of players paraded down Potomac Street. The Alsatia Club set up more than 2,200 chairs along the route, but the sidewalks were jammed several rows deep with spectators, while others enjoyed a view from their apartments on a balmy October night.
