Cove Parade Winners Announced, Pictures, Christmas Event Big Success




Cove’s 26th Christmas Xtravaganza parade and reception with Santa Claus was a great success.


Our parade winners were presented trophies and ribbons provided by Jeanne Jordan.


The “Overall” trophy went to the Coffee Vault’s float and elves.


First place was won by Patrick McDaniel’s float, second place went to Bailey’s ATV, and third place was won by Cody with his “reindeer horse”.


To everyone who participated in our parade: “You helped make it the big success it was”.


We would like to express our gratitude to the men from the Ross Tunnell American Legion Post 249 at Wickes who acted as our Color Guard, and to the Polk County Sheriff’s office for taking the time to provide traffic control.


To the Cove Rural and the Town of Cove Fire Departments: Thank you for escorting Santa!


At the reception, Santa talked with the many children who had waited to see him. The beautiful cakes from Walmart, and the cookies donated by Subway and James Super Save disappeared faster than you could say “Merry Christmas”.


We would like to extend our thanks to our very capable servers, the parade judges, the decorating committee from the Cove branch of the Polk County Library, and everyone else who helped make this event so spectacular.
