El Paso County Commissioner Pct. 1

Commissioner Leon in the Sun Carnival Parade


Commissioner Carlos Leon and his wife Bonnie were honored to participate in the 2013 First Light Federal Credit Union Sun Carnival Parade.  The crowd of people along the parade route on Montana Street was estimated to exceed 300,000.  While somewhat cool in the morning, the temperature was perfect for the rest of the day.

This edition of the parade was the 77th parade since its inception.  The first parades were held on January 1st in conjunction with the Sun Carnival ending with the Sun Bowl Football Game.  Eventually, the day of the parade was changed to Thanksgiving Day.

Recently, the parade was ranked by AOL Travel in the top five nationally of Thanksgiving Day parades.
