LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - A festive parade, Holiday in the Park started the Holiday season Saturday, at Elmer Thomas Park.

Families lined the streets to see lights starting at C Avenue by the Central Mall and headed all the way down to Elmer Thomas Park. The parade was led by the flashing lights of the Lawton Police Department, and followed by over 60 floats. One family says they're happy the community puts this together, each and every year.

"It's awesome to see all the businesses and all the people involved in it," said Johnathan Lewis."We brought our family out so they could enjoy all the different lights and the parade as it goes along. They're pretty young kids, so they're here having a good time and we're appreciative of the fact that we can participate in this."

The lights at the park will stay on all through the holiday season until January 1 of next year.
