EL PASO, Texas – The Sun Bowl Association and Glasheen, Valles & Inderman Injury Lawyers has announced that for the first time in the 87-year history of the Glasheen, Valles & Inderman Sun Bowl Parade the parade committee is offering high schools an opportunity to enter its winning homecoming float in the parade that is scheduled for Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 23, 2023, in El Paso, Texas.
There are some rules and guidelines that must be followed, including the fact that the float must accompany the respective high school’s marching band.
Between the marching band, cheer group, JROTC and the winning homecoming float, this makes for a great opportunity to bring more attention to the school’s programs while also promoting school spirit to the people of El Paso that are lined along the three-mile parade route and those watching on television. This opportunity could potentially lead to other initiatives and programs, such as sponsorships, etc.
High schools don’t want to miss the chance to put their winning float and band in one of El Paso’s oldest traditions and largest single day event.
This is limited to only 10 high schools and the winning homecoming float must be accompanied by the high school marching band.
Average attendance of 200,000
60,000 +\- watching it regionally on KTSM
7,400 +\- who stream it live from around the world
The parade broadcast will have a link that can be viewed all year

This year’s parade will be on Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, Nov. 23, 2023 at 10 a.m. (MT) on Montana Ave. and will be televised on KTSM News Ch. 9.
This will be the third parade with Glasheen, Valles & Inderman Injury Lawyers as the title sponsor.
