By the end of the night, most of the community had left, but that didn’t stop Roberta Franco, far right, from announcing that the Mesquite Police Department had won the ‘most food’ award for the year, bringing in 448 pounds of food for the local food banks.

    Congratulations to all who organized the Light Parade. It is a wonderful addition
    to Mesquite’s holiday celebration, and a great family event. Thanks to all those
    who entered the parade and attended the Christmas Tree Lighting. It was a
    beautiful evening.

    Merry Christmas!

    It was so nice to see all the different floats and how many there were and all kids loved seeing Santa many times. Great parade and hope more floats next yr.
    Oh towing company why not put Santas sleigh on the back?
