Floats Ready for 55th Annual Christmas Parade

LAREDO,Texas(KGNS)- The 55th Annual Christmas Parade is days away, but floats are already ready for their grand debut.

The Texas Parade Association has been making preparations for the parade for three months now.

They showed our cameras the result of all their hard work.

This year's parade is one of the biggest they've seen, with over one hundred participants.

The association was contracted with building nine floats including the one Santa will be riding on.

The Christmas parade will be Friday, December 7th at 6 pm.

The parade starts at Burlington and ends on Garden street next to the former Civic Center.

This year's theme is "A Story Book Christmas" with an emphasis on the arts and literacy.
