Trump Parade 6

Miles of vehicles traveled from Paris to Hugo, Oklahoma, on Highway 271 North for a parade of support for President Donald Trump on Saturday.

Association of Lamar County Republicans President Robert Black has announced a second Texas-Oklahoma Trump Parade in support of President Donald Trump’s run for a second term.

The first parade took place Oct. 10 with a group in Paris headed up Highway 271 North to Hugo, Oklahoma, while a Hugo group headed to Paris and back again. Thousands of vehicles participated.

The event was so popular, it led to demand for a sequel.

Saturday’s parade will be much like the first, with participants lining up in Hugo and in Paris, with the Hugo group traveling south on Highway 271 and the Paris group heading north. Line up in Paris will be at 7 a.m. at the Lamar County Fairgrounds, 570 E. Center St., and in Hugo at the Agriplex at the corner of 5th and Rena streets. The parade will begin at 9 a.m. sharp.

Black said a group from Dallas will join in, and a group of bikers from Waxahachie is coming.
