It’s time to get ready for the 2018 Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade by submitting your entry form by the Nov. 27 deadline.
Presented by Bowie Community Development, the parade is one of the largest and longest running lighted parades in North Texas. This marks the 27th year.
For the first time in many years the parade will have a theme, “Down Home Texas Christmas,” and all entries must be lighted. This year’s grand marshal will be Texas country singer Monty Dawson.
A $250 prize will go to the overall sweepstakes winner with a $100 prize for first place and $50 for second place in each of the categories: Community/non-profit, business, equestrian and decorated vehicle.
Entry forms are available at the BCD office at 101 E. Pecan and also on its Facebook page.
