Enterprise gets floated
An approximately 12 foot USS Enterprise float is being unveiled during the three mile parade to commemorate Gene Roddenberry. The creator of Star Trek was born in El Paso, Texas in on August 19, 1921. As the theme of this year’s parade is "El Paso Pride" it is appropriate to honor the man who gave the world Star Trek. The float is being created by the Downtown Lions Club of El Paso. [El Paso Times]

Roddenberry float being prepared
The Sun Bowl Parade is the largest parade of its kind in West Texas/New Mexico, with between approximately 350,000 people attending. It started in 1936 as a prelude to the New Year’s Day Sun Bowl football game. However, in 1978 it was moved to Thanksgiving Day. The parade is on TV beginning at 10 a.m. on Channel 9-KTSM (cable Channel 10)
