Lufkin school prepares for Christmas Parade

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Now that Thanksgiving has passed many areas are getting ready for Christmas.

Tuesday night is the annual Main Street Lighted Christmas Parade in Lufkin.

Today students and parents of St. Cyprian's Episcopal School were out decorating their float with lights and other Christmas items that will showcase this year's theme, winter wonderland.

This is a project that lets both the parents and children get ready for the holidays.

"It's a great way to start the Christmas season, the parade is always a joy, and St. Cyprians always enjoys participating in it," said a St. Cyprian parent.

The parade starts at 6 PM in the Lufkin downtown district and will showcase many colorful floats from organizations from around the area, including KTRE Television.

The parade will also have a special Grand Marshall, Brandon Belt, first basemen for the World Series winning San Francisco Giants.
