Christmas cheer on the move in Craig’s Parade of Lights

Fresh from the Thanksgiving table Thursday and recent weekend shopping, Craig crowds hit the sidewalks Saturday night for the Downtown Business Association Parade of Lights.

The yearly spectacle and lead-in to Christmas in Craig was packed with holiday lights and sounds as floats, trucks, cars and more moved along the route on Yampa Avenue and Victory Way.

Winning the top honors from DBA judges were Katie the Bread Lady in first place, US Mule in second, and The OP Bar & Grill in third.

Yampa Valley Electric Association’s prize for best lights went to Northwest Colorado Chapter of Parrotheads as the brightest of the bunch.
