It turned out to be a perfect night for a holiday parde as thousands lined the streets in historic downtown McKinney on Saturday, Dec.10 to view the McKinney Rotary Club’s annual Parade of Lights. This year, the theme “A Star Spangled Christmas”, brought out the red, white and blue as many of the floats paid tribute to our country and our veterans.
Of course, there was also a visit by the guy with the white beard in the illustrious red suit – Santa.
This year’s float winners were:
First Prize: Girl Scout Troop 9323 – $700
Second Prize: Girl Scout Troop 925 – $450
Third Prize: Cub Scout Troop 886 – $250
Fourth Prize: Johnson Middle School Cheerleaders – $100
