Bring the whole family

The parade will feature the Plainview High School Marching Band, floats, vintage autos, Santa Claus and more. It will travel for about a mile on Main Street starting at Sam Ellis Drive and ending near the new ACE Hardware, but we recommend watching it somewhere between Boykin Tractor and Casa Poblano's Mexican Cuisine.
