Manvel held its 2nd Lighted Christmas Parade Dec. 8, although the tree lighting was not part of it as planned due to inclement weather.
Floats, trucks, Jeeps and horses delighted all who came out to watch the procession celebrating the upcoming holidays in Manvel.
Mayor Debra Davison rode in a Jeep joined by some parade elves.
City Manager Kyle Jung prepared for the parade with cones that would block off traffic during the holiday procession.
The parade route began at Manvel High School and travelled down McCoy Rd. to Hawkins St., Sommerville Lane, Livingston and Charlotte St. before going toward the city tree on McCoy Rd. again.
Parade viewers and participants joined together following the parade for hot cocoa and caroling at MHS.
“So many volunteers helped us with the parade and the serving of hot cocoa,” Mayor Davison said. “It was a great night and another successful parade to celebrate the holidays.”
