Center City's Electric Light Parade

Amarillo, TX - Center City hosted their annual Electric Light Parade, and this year theme was Hollywood Holidays.

Many floats drove down Polk Street decorated as some famous holiday movie characters and scenes such as the Grinch, the island of misfit toys, and "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation." Despite the cold many people lined the streets to watch these festive floats go by. Executive Director of Center City, Beth Duke, said people take weeks to prepare their floats and even put the finishing touches on moments before the parade starts.

Duke said they put the parade on every year as a gift to the community, and have been doing so for the last 20 years.

The parade ended at the Civic Center and the evening concluded with the lighting of the city's Christmas tree.
