The Parade

City Lights parade starts at 7pm at Travis and 8th Street, will go down 8th Street to Ohio, Ohio to 9th, and up 9th to First Baptist Church. Lots of area to find a good spot to watch the parade!! Over 100 vehicles will wander through Downtown Wichita Falls depicting different books from Dr. Seuss. The parade will be judged by local authors and illustrator that have used their creative talents to encourage young readers! Thank you Jana Hausburg, Katie Crosbie Holland, and Simon Welch for being our judges. This year’s Grand Marshall is former Mayor Stephen Santellana for all his years of service to our community!
