RICHMOND, Va. -- Thousands flocked to Broad Street in Richmond Saturday morning for the 34th annual Dominion Energy Christmas Parade.

The parade, which kicked off at 10 a.m. and wrapped up around noon, marched down Broad between the Science Museum of Virginia and 7th Street.

The theme of this year's parade was "Christmas Around the World," in honor "Hidden Figures," the New York Times bestseller and award-winning movie about three African-American female NASA mathematicians who research helped make early spaceflight possible.

Margot Lee Shetterly, the book's author, and Dr. Christine Darden, the retired NASA mathematician, data analyst and aeronautical engineer profiled in the book, were the parade's grand marshals.

The parade, which was broadcast LIVE on CBS 6 and streamed on WTVR.com, will re-air on Christmas Day from 9 to 11 a.m. on CBS6. [CLICK HERE to watch the entire broadcast on the WTVR CBS 6 Facebook page.]

The parade attracts tens of thousands of people from across the state and thousands more tune in for the TV and online broadcasts.
