This year’s award-winning McAllen Holiday Parade, presented by La Plaza Mall, promises to be a star-studded event that will feature star athletes who are integral members of America’s Team and a chance for free tickets by simply purchasing family favorites at H-E-B stores throughout the Texas border.
“I am so excited to announce that this year’s McAllen Holiday Parade Grand Marshal is Ezekiel Elliott, running back for the Dallas Cowboys,” said McAllen City Manager Roel “Roy” Rodriguez, P.E. “As the #1 running back in the league right now, Ezekiel brings such excitement and passion to the game and is so proud to wear silver and blue and that star on his helmet. We know that he will enchant Dallas Cowboys fans of all ages at the parade.”
“If that weren’t enough, he will be joined by his teammates Cole Beasley, who is currently the #1 wide receiver in the league, and Darius Jackson, back-up running back for Ezekiel. This is truly a star-studded line-up,” Rodriguez concluded.
As parade grand marshal, Elliott will lead the parade on one of the first floats. Beasley and Jackson will also be featured on their own floats, allowing fans an opportunity to see their favorite current Dallas Cowboys players throughout the parade.
“I am so proud to have been asked to be the grand marshal for the McAllen Holiday Parade,” said Elliott. “I am looking forward to being a part of this amazing holiday celebration.” While Jackson echoed Elliott’s sentiment, Beasley, a Texas native, had this to say:
“I know I will be in Dallas Cowboys Country when I am in McAllen, so I expect to see everyone in their Cowboys gear at the 2016 McAllen Holiday Parade.”
