Thanks to All Who Helped Make Ranger’s Parade Successful

Ranger Historical Preservation Society expresses many thanks for another beautiful Night-Time Lighted Christmas Parade coming down our town’s Main Street. The Society also thanks the Ranger Fire Department for bringing Santa to Ranger in the parade – and of course Santa for taking the time out of his most busy season to come to visit with the area children. We also thank all the Media who helped before, during and after!

The Night-Time Lighted Christmas Parade began twenty years ago with only one cancellation (2013 due to ice on the highways). The success of all the Ranger parades would not happen without the support of many folks – those who work to put the parades together and those who support them financially
