Annual Holiday In The Park Kicked Off Tonight

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._Lawton kicked off the holiday season with its annual Holiday in the Park parade, and it's a fact that the holiday spirit was alive.

Bands, floats and other parade entries marched down Ferris avenue from Lawton High School to the 3rd street entrance to Elmer Thomas Park. That's when the lights came on for the first time this season and Santa Claus made his grand arrival. Hundreds came out to the event and event organizers hope that it is something that continues to grow. The parade's theme this year was a "Wild West Christmas."

The display will light up the park with holiday cheer every night through the New Year.
