The Mena/Polk County Chamber of Commerce held the annual Christmas Parade of Lights on Saturday, December 2, and the crowds lining the streets were well pleased as it was full of beautiful floats and participants.
To many spectators, the parade was marked as “the best one yet” and the float competition was fierce. This year’s theme was Dreaming of a White Christmas.
AmeriChemm, LLC won for Best Theme Representation and the Christian Motocyclists Association was chosen as the Chamber Favorite.
In the Best in Show category, Christ Community Fellowship took third place, Union Bank took second, and this year’s Christmas Parade of Lights Best in Show was Mena Regional Health System (pictured top left).
