Beginning at 11 a.m., parade participants will leave Pizza Hut Park, traveling east on Main Street through historic downtown before finishing at North County Road.
The Frisco Community Parade is held every November to mark Veterans Day and showcase community spirit. The parade -- which was originally a homecoming parade when Frisco was home to one high school -- features floats, school marching bands, high school football teams, cheerleaders, scouts, civic organizations, youth sports teams, Frisco-based professional sports teams, not to mention local businesses.
The theme of this year’s parade is ‘Heroes’. This year, the Grand Marshal honors are shared by three people: Major Rob Aguam, United States Marine Corps; Officer Chris Cogan, Frisco Police Department’s “Officer of the Year 2010”; and Firefighter/Paramedic Will Tramel, Frisco Fire Department’s “Firefighter of the Year 2010”.
“This year we’re honoring our local heroes, as well as the men and women of our armed forces, past and present,” said Mayor Maher Maso, who is chairman of the parade committee. “We owe our freedoms and sense of security to these men and women who serve here at home and abroad.”
Parade registration fees are $150 for non profit and youth organizations and $200 for business and professional organizations. Proceeds from the parade entry fees support student scholarships distributed through the Frisco Education Foundation.
The City of Frisco is also looking for more volunteers to help with staging and monitoring crowds along the parade route. To volunteer, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
