Louie of the Springfield Cardinals waves as he passes the crowd on Grand Avenue during Saturday's Christmas parade.

A 4-year-old Houston boy battling terminal cancer was the grand marshal for Saturday’s annual Christmas parade.

Liam Myrick, who was diagnosed with 4 neuroblastoma last year, led the parade route as it winded through downtown Houston on Saturday. This year’s theme was “Old Tyme” Christmas.

The parade is hosted by the Houston Area Chamber of Commerce. The Houston Sorosis Club handles the lineup and registration.

Northside Baptist Church took top honors among the floats by winning the religious and best of show awards. U.S. Forestry Service won the non-religious prize.
