There were 13 entries in the “Festival of Lights”-themed parade.
All of the entries were creative and bright in some way, and hundreds of Meeker residents and visitors lined Main Street for the length of the parade.
The winners of the parade were:
The “It’s a Wonderful Life” Best of Show Award was presented to Pioneers Medical Center.
The “Clark Griswold” Brightest Float Award went to White River Electric Association.
The Santa’s Elves Choice Award went to the Meeker Volunteer Fire and Rescue.
Santa, a huge lighted elk and Madison Kindler shared the float put together for Rocky Mountain Hair Benders, a nail and hair salon in Meeker. While the weather was cool for the Meeker Parade of Lights and other events, it was notably about 40 degrees warmer on the night of the events, held Dec. 3, than it was for last year’s parade.
