Snow didn’t deter parade fans

Craig residents bundled up Saturday night and headed to the Parade of Lights downtown.

Despite snow-covered streets and sidewalks, coordinator Karen Brown of the Downtown Business Association said she was pleased with the turnout and the weather.

“It was fun,” she said. “I love the snow.”

Jayne Goda, who watched the parade, said the snow didn’t deter her one bit.

“That’s what makes it Christmasy,” she said.

Goda said she wished the parade were a bit longer, and Brown agreed,.

Entrants were asked to follow the parade’s theme, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” A “mystery judge” gave out prizes.

Oasis Tanning and Nails and Tranzformations Salon, who made a joint float, won top prize with the theme, “Who’s Home for Christmas?” based on “The Grinch” story. They won $250 in Spree Bucks, souvenir photos and the traveling trophy for the year.

Moffat County Home School Association was first runner-up, winning $150 in Spree Bucks. Under the Aspen Tree was second runner-up.

The event was organized by the Craig Lions Club and the DBA. The prize sponsors were Cook Chevrolet, Victory Motors of Craig, Craig Ford-Mercury, Yampa Valley Electric Association, the Copy Shop and KRAI radio.
