A reception was held in the new Devon Boathouse during the Devon Energy Holiday River Parade on the Oklahoma River.
Sponsors and guests enjoyed the parade inside the boathouse and outside on the viewing deck as everyone had a exceptional look at the fireworks and the lighted- up holiday boats. Hot chocolate, coffee, beer, wine and appetizers were served to the guests, and they also got the best view of the boat with Santa and the reindeer.
For the parade there were awards presented including the Mayor’s Award: David’s Sports Center; Grand Marshal’s Award: Terry Townsend and family; Parade Chairman’s Award: David Ecker and family. Other awards in the corporate category: Devon Energy’s River Cruiser Pioneer, first; River Parade Presenting Sponsors River Cruiser Explorer, second, and Homsey Law Firm River Cruiser Discovery, third. Individual/small business category: Dewayne Harman, first; Tom Wood, second, and David and Jody Patton, third.
