This year’s Annual Lighted Christmas Parade was well attended in spite of the cold weather. The comments that I heard from the people standing around us and from others who were elsewhere on the parade route is that, “This year’s Christmas parade was the best one yet.” I hope everyone stayed warm and enjoyed the hot chocolate that was being handed out by several of the local churches and organizations. This year’s parade winners are Commercial 1: First place, Wells Fargo Bank; Second place, Crestview Cable Communications; and Third place, Mike Hornbeck, State Farm Insurance. Commercial 2: First place, Rosendin Electric; and Second place, Rays Food Place and Price Slasher. Civic/Non Profit: First place, Central Oregon Patriots; Second place, Peak 7; and Third place, Calvary Baptist Church. Horse Drawn: First place, Baisch Grandkids; and Second place, Prineville Insurance. Musical: First place, New Life Bible Chapel, and Second place, Jazzercise. Special: First place, Central Oregon Llama Association; Second place, Detachment 1/234th Engineers OR Amy National Guard; and Third place, Crook County Rodders and Band of Brothers. Special thanks go out to all the entries and to those who attended the Annual Christmas Parade. The winners listed above were provided by the Prineville – Crook County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center.
