With the annual FirstLight Federal Credit Union Sun Bowl Parade less than two weeks away, scores of volunteers are working long hours to finish the floats and displays for the event.
The Sun Bowl Parade is the largest attended community event in the west Texas, New Mexico and Mexico area and brings together service clubs and civic organizations as well as all sectors of business and industries within the community.
Earlier this year, the Sun Bowl Association officials announced that WWE Superstar Sin Cara would be the Grand Marshal for the parade.
“With the theme of our parade being ‘Amazing Feats’ we figured we needed to choose someone who has accomplished something big and amazing,” said Bernie Olivas, Executive Director of the Sun Bowl Association. “How much more amazing does it get than making it to one of the biggest stages in the world, the WWE? To have someone from El Paso who is so successful and inspirational as our Grand Marshal is amazing in itself.”
The 82nd Annual FirstLight Federal Credit Union Sun Bowl Parade is scheduled for Thursday, November 22 – Thanksgiving Day – and starts promptly at at 10 a.m.
