The Frisco Community Parade celebrates heroes.

The theme of this year’s Nov. 10 event was “Every Hero Has a Story.”  Entrants were asked to consider the theme, along with celebrating our nation’s veterans, in creating their parade presentations.

The parade, which also serves to honor veterans, averages nearly 100 entrant groups each year. The community’s many veterans, the FISD School Board, the Frisco City Council and other elected officials, as well as high school homecoming queens and kings, bands, football teams, dance teams and color guards, all lined up in the parking lots at Toyota Stadium before marching down Frisco Street and then east on Main Street to North County Road.  

Entrants also included local businesses, Hella Shriners clowns, clubs, teams and costumed characters. This year’s parade also featured a military flyover.

The 2018 grand marshal was retired Frisco ISD superintendent and community volunteer Rick Reedy. Reedy is also the namesake for Reedy High School and a former principal of Frisco High School.

The roots of this time-honored fall event are in what was for many years Frisco High School’s homecoming parade. As the city grew and the school district built multiple high schools, the parade became known as the Frisco Community Parade.

The Superintendent’s Award, the Mayor’s Award and the Grand Marshal’s Award are awarded to the top three parade entrants who make floats and observe the theme. The winners are awarded a banner to carry in the parade and $1,000 is donated in the name of the winners to the Frisco Education Foundation. This year’s top winners were:

  • Superintendent’s Award - Christie Elementary, which entered a full-size float with a little girl in a meadow, surrounded by butterflies, bugs and story books.  

  • Mayor’s Award – The Frisco Rotary Club, whose float honored several local leaders and veterans.

  • Grand Marshal’s Award – Frisco Council of PTAs Multicultural Float, which honored the many cultures that make up Frisco today.

Other bragging rights award banners were presented to these groups:

  • Parade Judge’s Award – Legacy Christian Academy football trailer

  • Best Theme-Related Award – Lebanon Trail High School football trailer

  • Most Creative Award – Early Childhood School

  • FISD Spirit Award – Heritage High School football trailer

  • Boys of Fall Award – Independence High School football trailer
