(November 19, 2013) More than a hundred school, civic and business groups marched, danced and floated down Main Street during this year’s Frisco Community Parade. Hundreds more families and friends lined downtown streets to cheer them on.
The event gave many Frisco groups a chance to put their creative energy on parade, designing and decorating floats that were imaginative, inspiring and amusing. See the list below for the award winners or click on Facebook for photos. View a video of participants.

Frisco residents enthusiastically welcomed Grand Marshal SFC (R) John Wayne Walding, who completed tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and was awarded the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star and the Silver Star.
