Video: Sun Bowl Parade Volunteer Float Builders Talk About the Joys of Helping

With the 82nd Annual Sun Bowl Parade only a couple months away, float building is underway and local volunteers are sharing their experiences.

In a video produced by the Sun Bowl Association, volunteers talk about why they continue to dedicate their free time to build floats.

Sun Bowl Parade officials say their event is “the largest community event in the west Texas, New Mexico and Mexico area, it brings together service clubs and civic organizations as well as all sectors of business and industries within the community.”

“The holiday pageant is planned, coordinated and produced by volunteer efforts and draws an annual crowd of over 250,000 spectators,” officials add.

Back in 1935 the El Paso Downtown Lions Club first organized the parade, which was held on New Year’s Day from 1936 until 1978, when the event was rescheduled for Thanksgiving Day.

The parade, sponsored by FirstLight Federal Credit Union, is scheduled for Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 22, 2018 with a start-time of 10 a.m. (MT).

The parade runs down Montana Ave from Ochoa Street and ends at Copia Street.

For more information on the parade go to the Sun Bowl Association website.
