Christmas is a time for family and what's more fun for the family than a parade? Downtown Pauls Valley plays host every December to the annual Parade of Lights. Awards are given for floats in each of three categories: 'Spectacular Sparkles', which goes to the float with the most innovative illumination; 'Milk & Cookies', which goes to the best float featuring the kiddos; and 'O Holy Lights' which goes home with the float featuring the best religious theme. The overall best float receives the coveted 'Knock Your Socks Off' award. With all of these awards competition is fierce and the floats are not like anything you would normally see in a small town parade.
The floats aren't alone in the parade. There are plenty of local bands, singers, and classic cars too. Because the music is just as important as the floats there are musical awards as well. The 'Jingle Bell Rockin'' award goes to the parade's best musical act.
After the parade you can top off the evening with a chili dinner or maybe ice skating, all in downtown Pauls Valley.
