Frisco's Annual Community Parade to be Held November 13; Honors Veterans, Showcases School Spirit

(November 10, 2021) The word on the street is ‘Everyone loves a parade’ – especially when it celebrates community and school spirit while honoring Veterans.  

The annual Frisco Community Parade will march through downtown this Saturday, November 13. Beginning at 10 a.m., parade participants will leave Toyota Stadium, marching east on Main Street before finishing at North County Road. 

This year’s theme is ‘Frisco: We are One’.  Nearly 100 entries make up this year’s parade.  High school football teams, bands, drill teams and Homecoming royalty participate. Frisco Independent School District’s ‘Teachers of the Year’ and FISD Board of Trustees are among the entries.  Mayor Jeff Cheney and the Frisco City Council are participating. City police officers, firefighters and ‘Green Team’ members, as well as scouts, civic groups and businesses join the celebration, too.  

Veterans are showcased every year in the Frisco Community Parade.  This year’s Parade Grand Marshal is Corporal Bob Norris, USMC (Ret.) and he served in the North Korea conflict.  The Frisco Distinguished Veteran of the Year is awarded to Lee Myrben, USN (Ret.).  

Participating military organizations include American Legion, Peter J Courcy Post 178; Frisco Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 8273; Military Order of the Purple Heart, Chapter 542; First Calvary Division Band, Fort Hood; 140th Military Police Company and Carry The Load.
