A contest was held and city officials recognized floats for their originality and creativity. In addition, one float received a “People’s Choice” award that was decided via input from residents on the city’s Facebook page. The parade was organized and sponsored by the City of Pearland and the Pearland Parks and Recreation Department.

The float created by Girl Scout Troop 21305 was recognized as the best overall float.

The runner-up for the best overall float award was given to a float created by Epiphany Lutheran Church. An award for the best use of this year’s parade there, Candy-Coated Christmas was given to Girl Scout Troop 27574. A float created by Alvin Community College won an award for the best use of lights.

The People’s Choice award went to a float created by Girl Scout Troop 21305.
