Organizers for Merry Wells have announced the winners of the 2022 lighted Christmas parade. The theme was Christmas at the Movies. Drum Roll Please…..

The Merry Wells Award(Best Overall)-Worley’s Lube Center

Worley’s is no stranger to this award as they have taken it home in the past. This year they knocked it out of the park with a Movie Theater complete with a popcorn bar and a live TV playing movies. Characters from classic movies such as Elf and A Christmas Story waved to the crowd. The float was spectacular.

Best Use of Lights-AMR

The AMR float was aglow with beautiful lights but perhaps it was the Glow of Love that pushed them into the winners circle. Onlookers were treated to a live marriage proposal on the float in the middle of the parade. It was definitely Hallmark Movie material. See the float and the proposal in the video below.
