As the float season winds down for our Deer Park Float association and our Miss Deer Park representatives for 2019, they ended the year on a high note! The group brought home the Grand Sweepstakes honors from Odessa the 2nd to last weekend in September, and from Leavenworth the final weekend in September. Congratulations to each person who helped to bring the magic of this year’s Lion King theme to life — the surrounding communities did indeed hear Deer Park roar!
