The Blythe holiday parade received a dose of extra cheer thanks to the float entered by the staff at Chuckawalla Valley State Prison (CVSP).

The float featured Minions, from the popular “Despicable Me” movies and spin-offs. The hard work of the staff paid off as the float won the Mayor’s Trophy.

The annual parade usually features 50 entries and follows along Hobsonway.
