The night was also accompanied by musical talents of Talynn Lovato, Jenna Smith, the Green River High School choir and the Green River High School band. The event also boasted a raffle for a wagon full of toys and goodies as well as awards for the floats featured in the parade.

Jenna Smith, the city’s event coordinator, organized the festivities. This is her first year in the position of the event coordinator.
