Thousands attend community parade

December 5, 2011

Herald Staff Report

As anticipated, thousands of people lined Gregg and Scurry streets Saturday for the annual Big Spring Herald Community Christmas Parade.
Hundreds more participated in the event, riding on floats — elaborate and simple — walking, or manning cars, bicycles, motorcycles and horses.
GEO Group won the Grand Marshal's award. Western Container won the Publisher's Award and Midway Baptist received Best of Show.
Lamun-Lusk-Sanchez Texas State Veterans Home, the Circuit Riders Cowboy Church, Cub Scouts of America, The Dance Gallery, First Baptist Church Mother's Day Out, Texas Sports Supply & Screen Printing and United Way were among the other floats that caught the judges' attention.
“We'd like to say thank you to all the participants. This was one of the largest parades we've had in the 26 years the Herald has been putting it on,” said Rick Nunez, parade coordinator.
“We invite everyone to plan to enter next year's event,” he added.
The parade is always held the first Saturday in December.
