The 2014 Holiday Cart Parade was, once again, a smashing success. Scores of festively decorated carts cruised through Sun City Center, much to the delight of hundreds gathered along the route. Santa and his eclectic collection of holiday elves tossed candy, beads and endless good cheer out to attendees. After all the carts were parked and the awards were announced, everyone gathered to kick off the season with WinterFest. Thanks to Minto, the available prize money was bigger and better than ever. A total of $6,000 was awarded for creativity and festive impact. Congratulations to all the winners and a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated, proving, once again, that, while we may not have a White Christmas, the holiday spirit is alive and well in Sun City Center!
