Community Focus: The Lemoore Christmas Parade

December 6th, 2018

Here at Shaw’s Air Conditioning & Heating, we pride ourselves on keeping things local. This year we wanted to get in the holiday season with our community so we marched out on the first of the month to participate in Lemoore Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Christmas Parade. We’re pretty proud of our float. We decked it out with multicolored lights (even on the truck pulling our float!), a Christmas tree, and our unique Shaw’s Air Conditioning & Heating flare—a parade float designed like a home! Our float depicted a comfy living room scene familiar to any Lemoore resident, complete with a furnace system to keep you cozy throughout the winter and a carbon monoxide monitor to keep you safe.

The message of our float was to underscore the importance of carbon monoxide monitors for home safety.

Building our float was a team effort, so we got the whole Shaw’s community together for the parade.

The Shaw’s Air Conditioning & Heating family.

We love this parade and this time of year. Our team did an amazing job with our float and we enjoyed seeing so many other members of our community showcase their passions through these floats. The Christmas parade is one of our favorite community events because of this reason.
