THUMBS UP To the annual Los Vigilantes-El Centro Merchants Christmas and the El Centro Chamber of Commerce-organized Tamale Fiesta. Both were well-attended and both were a lot of fun. El Centro?s Eighth Street was lined with thousands of residents enjoying a crisp, sunny day and the pageantry of one of the Valley oldest traditions in the parade. From high school and junior high bands to the Imperial Valley League champion Central Spartans football team ringing the Victory Bell, the parade was one highlight after another.

On Nov. 8 the city of Brawley held its 47th annual Cattle Call Rodeo. The parade, a part of the Cattle Call activities, is an excellent way for the community of Brawley and the rest of Imperial Valley to come together and support its youth, services organizations, clubs and businesses. Putting on a parade of this size is not an easy task. Plans for the parade as well as the other Cattle Call events begin months in advance. It takes assistance from every corner of our community to make it possible.

Staff Writer The Christmas holidays are a time for families to get together, and no traditional Southwestern food helps families do that better than tamales. With that in mind, El Centro will follow the Los Vigilantes Christmas parade on Dec. 7, with a Tamale Fiesta and Holiday Tamale Cook-Off. "My family always had tamales for Christmas. It's like turkey for Thanksgiving. The whole family gets involved in making them," El Centro Chamber of Commerce coordinator Olivia Ordona said.

COMMENT: Could you please use your connections to contact Los Vigilantes. Please tell them they are setting a poor example by not wearing helmets while riding ATVs. In the Cattle Call and the El Centro Christmas parade, a couple of them rode the parade routes several times before and during the parades on quads (ATVs) without wearing helmets. Riding without a helmet is against the law. Children watching the parades see them not wearing helmets and think they can get away with it too when they go riding in the desert.

First, I would like to thank the Imperial Valley Press for it?s write up about our Niland Tomato Festival. You and many others helped make it a success in these difficult economic times. Your article on Weekend Ticket brought in many new people that did not know about the Niland Tomato Festival, which is in its 69th year. Had it not been for the generosity of Dan Gautschi of Global ReNergy and Ray Babb of Sun Eco Energy donating all day ride tickets for the children of Niland (grades 1 through 8)
