The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources–Moab Field Station’s entry in this year’s Electric Light Parade on Dec. 6 floats down a darkened Main Street while DWR staffers and friends dressed as Star Wars characters walk alongside. The DWR entry, entitled “Star Wars: May the Fish Be With You,” has been selected as the best float in the parade by the Moab Area Chamber of Commerce. The Moab Chamber will present its traveling trophy to the Utah DWR during the chamber luncheon on Dec. 16. Two other entries in this year’s event — the National Park Service’s “Half the Park is After Dark,” and Moab Charter School’s “Starry Night in the Woods” — received honorable mention.
