One of the biggest holiday traditions in the Quad Cities had many people looking up in Davenport today.
Giant reindeers, Santa, and tractors made their way through the streets of downtown Davenport for Quad City Art's Festival of Trees parade.
It's the largest balloon parade in the Midwest and thousands turned out.
Some say their favorite part of the event is seeing the Quad Cities come together in the spirit of the season.
"The Holidays is the time where you have to drop it, you have to connect. You can't be mad around the holidays. You just can't," says Rebecca Wilson, a Davenport Resident.
The Festival of Trees will continue until November 25th.
