Christmas Parade is Spectacular

The 2022 Christmas Parade rolled last Thursday afternoon to a large crowd.  They were treated to a great number of floats, marching bands, dance teams, cheerleaders, civic leaders, and even more.

The Grand Marshall of this year’s parade was Karen Squires.  She is the President of the Coushatta Chamber and has headed the parade effort for the past several years.  Squires is also about to retire from Red River Schools where she served as Curriculum Director, among other duties.

Also, this year featured more vendors than in the last few years.  There were wonderful smells of Cajun favorites, burgers, turkey legs and lots more.  Visitors could also avail themselves of gourmet coffees at the new coffee house on Front Street.

The Journal is planning an expanded photo section of parade memories next Wednesday.
