Palominas Fire District

Thank you Susan for the pictures!The 2019 Palominas Unorganized Christmas Parade was December 7th. There were 50 units in the Parade and many folks lined Palominas Road to see the Parade. The Palominas Church sponsored cookie decorating and games for the kids after the Parade. Thanks to the Palominas Fire Department for hot chocolate and cupcakes and for their wonderful participation in the Parade. Thanks also to the Cochise Sheriff's Department for their participation and for keeping us safe. So many wonderful groups joined us. Special appreciation to the Tombstone JROTC for their mounted unit and the Echoing Hope Ranch for their float. We ALWAYS enjoy the Palominas District band. It was a wonderful parade and so much fun to see friends and neighbors! Merry Christmas to All! ... See MoreSee Less
