This year's "Lights of Christmas" parade will take place Saturday, December 8th at 6 p.m. in Downtown San Angelo. Last year there were more than 60 floats and groups that took to the streets. Participants included Grand Marshal Mayor Alvin New, the Christoval High School Marching Band, the Percussion group from Angelo State University, Patriot Guard Riders, San Angelo Riding Club, and more! Get a good seat so you don't miss the sights!
How to Enter a Float or Group: Everyone is invited to participate in this wonderful family entertainment event. Parade entrants may design an elaborate float, ride in a car, walk your dog, or ride a longhorn steer. There is just one rule that must be followed: your parade entry must be lighted. Also, please remember that this is a part of Concho Christmas Celebration, meant to be a fun time for children as well as adults. Please, no excessively loud music or inappropriate themes.
To enter, complete the entry form. Then, mail it to: Lights of Christmas Parade Chairman, P. O. Box 585, Mertzon, TX 76941. You may also fax your completed form to 325-658-1330. Completed entry forms are due November 30th. Late forms will not be accepted.
Because the parade is broadcast live on KCSA 95.7 FM and then will be shown on either KLST/KSAN (tba), it is important that you provide as much information as possible on your entry form so the parade emcees will be able to describe your entry to the listening/viewing audience.
A map of the parade route as well as information regarding line-up procedures will be forwarded to all entrants. Should you need additional information or have questions, please contact Suzanne McGee, parade chair at 325-632-4421 or 325-277-7859.
