The Weyburn Chamber of Commerce have announced the winners from last night's Parade of Lights.
“Wow, what a turnout we had,” said Executive Director Twila Walkeden. “We had some spectacular floats.”
Walkeden said there were around 50 floats in the parade, but there could only be two winners for Best Float.
“The judges had a very difficult decision,” she said, noting that there are two categories in which winners can be awarded in the winter parade.
The winner for Best Business Float went to Royal LePage Signature, for their “Whoville”-themed float, which included a Whoville home and two costumed characters, one of whom was likely the Grinch.
The winner for Best Organizational Float went to the Weyburn Oilwomen's Association, for their “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”-themed float, which included a number of references to the classic Christmas movie, complete with a motorhome and a station wagon with a tree tied to its roof.
Third Street was barricaded to keep away traffic, as well as to ensure no cars were parked in the way of the public’s view of the parade.
Walkeden said there were a number of comments about the new lights on Main Street and how they enhanced the look of all the floats.
“We really want to thank the City of Weyburn for their effort in making downtown Weyburn a beautiful place in the winter,” she added.
