Lamar Chamber Parade of Lights Float Results

McGruff Waiving to Parade-Goer’s Along Main Street


McGruff, The Crime Dog, led the way for the annual 2012, Lamar Chamber of Commerce Parade of Lights this past Friday evening, December 7.  This year’s theme was, “It’s a Wonderful Christmas Story”. 

The colorful entries started their Main Street journey at 6:30pm and concluded their trip just past the Enchanted Forest where Santa Claus debarked from his decorated train and spent some time in his cottage, meeting and chatting with youngsters from the community.
