This year’s third annual, ‘lighted’ Christmas Parade — hosted by the Paris Downtown Association — made a bright trek through town on Saturday evening, with many wonderful and artsy floats for the crowds of people gathered to watch.
Being that the parade is a competition for the floats — which represent different businesses, organizations, churches or schools — the float makers really brought their ‘A’-game for this 3rd round of the PDA’s evening Christmas Parade.
Below is the list of winners and another gallery of photos collected around the parade — although they are not all pictured, some of the photos below are winning floats. Click the thumbnails to enlarge.

The third annual lighted Christmas parade lit up downtown Saturday. This year’s theme was “A Sweet Christmas,” with children from Red River Valley Syndrome Society serving as grand marshals. The parade started after sunset in the Lamar County Courthouse parking lot, proceeded to Clarksville Street, where things took a left on 12th SE, down Lamar Avenue, over to North Main Street and back to the courthouse.
Lamar County Fairgrounds hosted the 24th annual Christmas in Fair Park this weekend. The bazaar took place in four separate buildings with exhibitors selling everything from furniture to Christmas decorations and everything in between. Santa also made an appearance.
