A Christmas light parade was held in Eagle Valley section of Tuxedo on Sunday, Dec. 12.
Each participant was to bring a bag of groceries for the local food pantry and spectators were asked to donate an item or two.
The parade featured more than 30 vehicles and floats adorned with lights and holiday characters. And the first-ever Eagle Valley Parade brought in more than 100 bags of groceries and dozens of supermarket gift cards.
The event was dreamed up by Ryan Kelly of RPK Landscape, sponsors included Clarkstown Coin & Jewelry, A&J Cycles, Character’s Bar and Restaurant and the Eagle Valley Fire Company. The Eagle Valley neighborhood would like to Thank RPK Landscape for spreading goodwill throughout the community.
Meanwhile, several boys from the Jr. National Honor Society got together and participated in the event. The boys met to discuss their ideas and how to execute their plan.
They decided to create “Santa’s Workshop” and got straight to work. They made their own props, decorated a truck for their float, dressed up like elves and away they went.
The boys had a great time while participating in a wonderful community event that gifted far beyond their neighborhood streets.
