Christmas Season Ushered in by Area Christmas Parades

Posted:

TEXOMA--- Tonight, people all across Texoma showed their holiday spirit at area Christmas parades.

In downtown Durant, the city was covered in green and red for the annual Christmas parade. Hundreds, came out to watch as the Durant High School band, the Sparklers and several others proceeded down Main Street. This year's theme was Christmas stories. 

"It's a great thing," Rick Lehr said about the Durant parade. "It brings the whole community together and it's just a good time for the kids."

Also taking place tonight was the city of Ardmore's annual Christmas tree lighting. Shortly after the lighting, a parade kicked off. Thousands lined Main Street to get a look at the lights and the parade, including our own Meredith Saldana who was in one of the cars with her daughter. This year was the 8th year the city hosted this special night.
