Jim McIngvale, also known as Mattress Mack and owner of Gallery Furniture, is the 2017 Hometown Christmas Parade Grand Marshal for the City of Pearland.
The City’s 36th Annual Lighted Christmas Parade will begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2.
This year’s theme is “12 Days of Christmas” and the parade will travel east along FM 518 from Old Alvin Road to Pearland Parkway.
Pearland City officials chose McIngvale for his community spirit. According to city officials, McIngvale continues to be instrumental in providing assistance to those in need. While many have faced tremendous hardships following Hurricane Harvey, McIngvale and his business works diligently to support the community and its first responders through their generous donations and services.
