Herald Christmas Parade welcomes holiday season

Thousands of Big Spring residents were treated to a a mix of patriotism and holiday spirit during Saturday's 25th Annual Big Spring Herald Community Christmas Parade.
Despite blustery, cool weather, crowds lined Gregg and Scurry streets to view the more than 40 entries that constituted the lineup for this year's event.
“Things went great,” Herald Publisher Ron Midkiff said. “The entries were really top-notch. I say this every year, but I really believe this was the most successful Christmas parade yet.”
The City of Big Spring and GEO Group came away with most of the awards in this year's parade. Both entries tied for first in Best in Show (for best interpretation of the parade's theme) and Publisher's Award (best use of lighting). The City of Big Spring made it a clean sweep of the major award categories by winning the Grand Marshal's Award (workmanship and originality).
West Texas VA Healthcare System's entry finished third in both Best of Show and Publisher's Award categories, and tied GEO group for second in the Grand Marshal's Award voting.
In other categories the winner were:
• Individual — Jacy Blair, first.
• Commercial and industrial — City of Big Spring, first; Western Container, second.
• Civic/School/Church — West Texas VA Healthcare System, first, Lamun-Lusk-Sanchez, second; Salvation Army Boys/Girls Club, third.
