Blanco Comes Out to Enjoy a Christmas Parade
Wednesday, December 12, 2007 • Posted December 11, 2007

The groups included in the parade were: American Flag Honor Guard; "Relay for Life" team; Aaron's Miniatures; Alamo Miniatures; Blanco River Lavender Co.; Tuptim Place Llamas; K&D Carriages; St. Ferdinand's Sunday school children; St. Ferdinand's Hispanic Community Choir; First Baptist Church; Blanco Heating & Cooling; Baker Surveying, Inc; Dirt Works, who brought Santa Claus to town, plus the Blanco Fire Dept & EMS.

Three judges (City Councilwoman, Rebecca Howerton, Bob Jones & Bill Noonan) reviewed the entries and awarded prize ribbons. The Grand Prize ribbon was awarded to the "Relay for Life" team, the 1st place ribbon went to the First Baptist Church children's nativity scene; 2nd place ribbon was awarded to the Dirt Works entries; and 3rd place went to Alamo Miniatures & Aaron Miniatures, who combined their efforts.

The Blanco Police Dept. did an excellent job of traffic control and escorting the parade through town--the reverse route passed by the nursing home first then circled the town square and worked very well.
