Tekamah had a light parade around Christmas time. It lived for about 3 years until it died for lack of leadership. People turned out for it. A lot of people turned out for it. This is the what my boys entered last year. They drove this old 4 door Ford pickup, up from Lincoln, and spent a Saturday afternoon mounting the generator, Christmas tree, (on back end) and enough lights to fairly blind onlookers. It took first place. There were probably only 7 or 8 entries, and I would guess 7 or 800 people sitting in cars, and standing along mainstreet. They didn't have anyone to take charge of the parade and run it right. If they had, it easily could have been a huge event. If I can find a picture of the combine son Tom decorated the year before, I'll put it up on this blog. Small town kind of fun. Not pictured is the lit up camel. No not a cigarette.
