Seven trophies were presented to the top floats participating in the Duncanville Lions Club July 4th Parade. The traditional Duncanville Independence Day Parade drew enthusiastic participants and onlookers to downtown Duncanville that Saturday morning. The theme of the 2022 July 4th Parade was Heroes Among Us, and recently retired Duncanville Police Officer Doug Sisk and his wife Rachel Sisk were honored as the Parade Grand Marshals.
The Grand Marshals led the parade, riding in a vintage Cadillac convertible owned by the driver, Lion Bob Harrison, with Georgia Pope as the front seat passenger. Duncanville Chamber’s Man of the Year, Greg Contreras, and Mayor Barry Gordon and his wife, also waved to the crowd from their convertibles. Councilman Don McBurnett, (who’s also Chairman of the annual Lions Club Parade), and other councilmembers were spotted driving golf carts among the colorful floats.
Parade Chairman McBurnett said, “The Duncanville Lions Club would like to thank the City of Duncanville, the Parade participants and the Community for another successful 4th of July Parade. There was a wonderful, increased turnout this year, and we look forward to a bigger and better one next year.”
