The Rock Springs Chamber of Commerce hosted the Annual Lighted Holiday Parade in Historic Downtown Rock Springs on Saturday evening.
This year’s parade theme, Christmas Needs More Cowboys, was selected to demonstrate triumph and resiliency.
The past year has been challenging due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Chamber CEO Rick Lee said our community has long demonstrated its ability to rise above adversity and work together for combined success.
“Our people are known to be tough, but also very compassionate and when challenges arise,” Lee said on the chamber’s Facebook page.
“We pull together, cowboy up and always end up stronger and better. This year’s parade is dedicated to the amazing people of Sweetwater County who have demonstrated great resiliency and have triumphed over our common enemy and the numberless challenges of the time.”
