Celebrating Tradition and Community: Clifton's Lighted Christmas Parade

In the heart of Bosque County, the town of Clifton illuminated the night this past Friday, December 1, 2023, with its annual lighted Christmas parade. This beloved event, a testament to the enduring values of community and tradition, commenced at 6:30 PM, marking the beginning of the holiday season.

Amidst the festive atmosphere, Max Smith, candidate for Bosque County Attorney, made a memorable entrance with his family in a classic horse-drawn carriage. This choice of transport wasn't just a nod to nostalgia; it was a powerful symbol of the values Max Smith represents – a return to simpler times, a focus on family, and a deep respect for our heritage.

The carriage, steered by the skilled hands of Terry Gunter, was a sight to behold. Pulled by Bonnie, a magnificent Percheron, it was a reminder of the grace and strength that are hallmarks of our great county. Terry, known for his deep connection to our local heritage, ensured a smooth procession through Clifton's decorated streets, embodying the spirit of Bosque County's rich history.

The "Vote for Max Smith" campaign team, consisting Max and his family, added to the cheer by distributing candy to onlookers, a gesture that brought smiles to many faces, especially the children's. This act of generosity was more than just a campaign strategy; it was a demonstration of the goodwill and community engagement that Max Smith champions.

The turnout for the parade was impressive, with families from across Bosque County gathering to witness the spectacle and partake in the communal joy. The sight of children laughing, parents chatting, and the elderly reminiscing created a tapestry of community bonding that is increasingly rare in today's fast-paced world.

This event was more than just a parade; it was a celebration of the values that make Bosque County special. In a time when the world seems divided, events like these remind us of what truly matters – family, community, and the simple joys of coming together.

As we move forward into the holiday season, let's remember the lessons from Clifton's lighted parade – the importance of community, the value of tradition, and the power of coming together to celebrate what makes our county great. Max Smith's participation in this event is not just a political statement; it's a commitment to these timeless values that we hold dear in Bosque County.
