The Grinch was a special guest at the Christmas parade, stopping to take photos with children.
Complete with tons of balloons and a host of familiar faces from Dreamwork’s “Trolls,” Post Family Dentistry’s vibrant float took the best of show out of 20 entries at the Post Area Chamber of Commerce’s 30th Annual Lighted Christmas Parade this year.
“The quality of the floats and other entries seem to get better every year,” Post Area Chamber of Commerce Manager Janice Plummer said. “We were afraid the pandemic would keep people from participating and attending, but it seems like everyone was just happy to have something to do.”
Following in the top three were Morales Cocina’s float, complete with Santa and Rudolph standing by a Christmas tree; the City of Post’s float which sported a lighted fireplace adorned with stockings; and the Briseno Family’s float which included a larger-than-life, inflatable snowman.
“I’m really glad I didn’t have to judge because it was a tough job this year,” Plummer said. “Everyone put a lot of time and effort into their entries and it showed.”
Honorable mentions included Kyle Gunn, Church of God of Prophecy and Pat Garrett. Best of the rest included Zach Sanchez, Bryan Looney, Terry Fowler, David Rivera and 40 Something Cowgirls.
Rounding out an impressive three decades of lighted parades, Plummer assures that there are to be many more in following years.
“It’s a great way to kick off the Christmas season and bring our community together,” Plummer said. “The Chamber is honored to bring this event to town every year and very grateful for the sponsors who continue to make it possible.”
