Despite El Paso's tough times, our city sure does know how to bring up the holiday spirit. Every Thanksgiving years before, Montana Avenue would fill up with crowds of people to see the parade.

This year, we've had to improvise a lot of everyday tasks we now do differently.

Luckily, The Sun Bowl Association put together a plan in order to continue a Thanksgiving tradition. The icing on the cake for El Pasoans, mostly fans of the Baltimore Ravens, and Green Bay Packers are this year's grand marshals.

Two men who represent 915 remarkably on and off the field are worthy of being the Grand Marshals for Oscar Leeser's Hyundai of El Paso Sun Bowl Virtual Parade. Alvin and Aaron Jones will be spending some of their Thanksgiving with us on our television screens. The guys will be leading the virtual parade which is definitely exciting for local Baltimore Ravens and Green Bay Packers fans.

They may play for opposite teams but as you will see in Alvin Jones Instagram post above, they're a perfect team together. The Jones brothers continue to work hard on and off the field.

Most of us see how hard they work on the field but don't get to see them working off the field. Alvin and Aaron Jones set up A& A All The Way Foundation that is dedicated to helping the youth in our community.

Oscar Leeser's Hyundai of El Paso Sun Bowl Virtual Parade will be broadcasted at 10 am on KTSM TV and online at

In my opinion, I am so stoked about the Jones brothers being the Grand Marshals for this year's virtual parade. Not only that, but it is exciting to see this new way we will be seeing the parade.

Something is triggering my curiosity about who will be watching the parade to catch the Jones brothers. Will more local Baltimore Ravens fans be watching just to see Alvin or local Green Bay Packers fans to see Aaron? Either one of those or you will watch just to support our local celebrities the way they support us. Let me know in the poll below.
