EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Officials with the Sun Bowl Association and title sponsors Glasheen, Valles & Inderman Injury Lawyers announced that this year’s theme will be ‘Mardi Gras – El Paso Style.’
“We really work at finding different themes each year,” Sun Bowl Executive Director Bernie Olivas said. “It gets a little challenging after 80-plus years of parades and various themes but we believe this year’s theme could be fun for the float builders.”
The Glasheen, Valles & Inderman Injury Lawyers Sun Bowl Parade is set for its traditional date of Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24 with start time set for 10 a.m. (MST)
The parade once again follows its traditional route, on Montana Avenue, starting at Ochoa and ending on Copia Street.
The parade will once again be broadcast live by KTSM 9 News and streamed on KTSM.com
Back in 1935, the El Paso Downtown Lions Club organized the first Parade and it held on New Year’s Day until 1978, when the event was rescheduled for Thanksgiving Day.
The Sun Bowl Association, with the help of over 700 volunteers, promotes and serves the El Paso community and features a year-round schedule of events culminating with the Annual Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl football game.
Other Sun Bowl core events include the Sun Bowl Flag Football Tournament, the Peter Piper Pizza Sun Bowl Punt, Pass and Kick, the Glasheen, Valles & Inderman Injury Lawyers Sun Bowl Parade, the WestStar Don Haskins Sun Bowl Basketball Invitational, and the Fan Fiesta.
