What has happened to the Sherman Christmas Parade? I saw the parade Saturday (Dec. 14) night and was shocked at the amount of people their and the parade itself. There used to be so many people that you could hardly get down the sidewalks.

It was the first parade that I have been to since 1995. The parades used to last from one to two hours long. The floats were awesome and there were bands from all over Grayson county. Sherman used to have four bands. They only had one band.


There used to be bands from Dallas, Plano,Van Alstyne, Howe, Denison, Pottsboro, Howe and so on. There were so many floats and riding clubs, Boy Scout troops, dance studios, and most of all, Santa. In fact Santa had a sleigh and reindeer. I was disappointed with the parade. I hope they get back to what we used to be.
