City celebrates Christmas

December 08, 2022

Community members came out in force for the annual Comanche Christmas Parade sponsored by the Comanche Area Chamber of Commerce last Saturday.

The long procession took just over an hour to complete with only one hiccup along the way - a stalled parade vehicle.

The weather was chilly but not too cold for those in attendance as children were able to leave the parade with buckets, bags and pocket fulls of candy and other goodies.

Float winners included Providence Baptist Church in first with their Peanuts-themed float. Second place went to First Bank & Trust and third place went to Countryside Baptist Church.

Winners in the emergency vehicles were Meridian Volunteer Fire Department in first place, Empire Volunteer Fire Department in second and Oakridge Volunteer Fire Department in third.

The Chamber Bucks drawing was also held with parade marshals John and Rita Graham of Graham Jewelry drawing the winner, who was Keith Smiley of Marlow.
