Annual Christmas Parade
Festival of Lights Christmas Parade
Sand Springs has had a Christmas Parade for a far back as the 50’s. There are several pictures of floats in the day time parade from back in that time. It became a night time parade 35 years ago. Luther “Red” Graham, president of Cust O Fab, was the one that started the night time parade. We usually have about 100 entries. That’s counting each Shriner entry and each car as an entry. The Chamber has always handled the entries and the city helped with the coordination for a long time. The Chamber now handles the entire event and provides the only Santa float. The candy for Santa to hand out was donated by area businesses. Debbie Nobles with PSO partners with the Chamber for the coordination of the parade 16 years ago and has done a marvelous job ever since.
