Registration Open for Community Parade(September, 2007)

Isbell Elementary Takes Part in 'O6 Community Parade

Frisco loves a parade in the fall and the annual Community Parade is a chance for families to come out and celebrate Veterans Day weekend, listen to all four high school marching bands and wave at the local football heroes.

The Veterans Day event honors our military and also gives each school a chance for student organizations to be highlighted. This year’s event is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Main Street on Saturday, November 10, according to Mayor Mike Simpson and Buddy Minett, president of the Frisco Independent School District Board of Trustees. Both men are serving on the parade committee this year.

Congressman Sam Johnson, a former Vietnam POW, has agreed to serve as parade marshal for the day. In addition to participation by Frisco Independent School District schools, bands and drill teams, community organizations such as the Frisco Garden Club, the Frisco VFW Post 8273 and other organizations. The parade traditionally has several antique cars and vehicles such as fire trucks and police cars in the line up.

Fees for registering in the parade are $150 for non-profit and youth organizations and $200 for business and other professional organizations. Persons may register on-line at Friscoparade.com or in person at the city’s communication office at City Hall or the FISD communication’s office at 6942 Maple Street.

Staging for the event will be at Pizza Hut Park and participants need to meet at PHP at 9 a.m. to line up for the parade.
