Finkelstein named Boom Master for 2018 Boom Box Parade

November 27, 2018

BULLHEAD CITY — Karole Finkelstein has been selected to serve as Boom Master for the upcoming 2018 Boombox Parade, conducted by the Colorado River Women’s Council.

The parade will take place Dec. 7 in Bullhead City, beginning at 6 p.m., and will travel a two-mile route on Hancock Road to Trane Road to Alona’s Way, ending at Gary Keith Civic Center Park.

This year’s theme, in honor of the 20th annual parade, is “Celebrating 20 Years With Harry Potter Christmas.” As always, the main theme of the parade remains “Spirit of Giving.”

It was that spirit of giving that led to Finkelstein’s nomination as Boom Master — the equivalent of grand marshal — for the annual Bullhead City parade.

Leslie Chester, publicity chair for the Colorado River Women’s Council, said that Finkelstein was nominated for “her astonishing, active volunteerism and dedication to our community.”

Finkelstein has been involved in community activities for nearly 20 years. Most recently, she and Elsie Needles combined to spearhead an effort to raise money for the new Colorado River Historical Society & Museum building in Bullhead Community Park. Phase I of the building is complete — the facility opened earlier this month — and efforts are continuing to add to the building that replaces the old museum at near Davis Camp.

“My personal mission is to be compassionate and giving for everything I am trying to accomplish,” Finkelstein said.

The Boom Box Parade is sponsored by Signature Sponsors Mohave Electric Cooperative and Perkins Restaurant & Bakery; Gold Sponsors DOT Foods, Advanced Animal Care, Golden Vertex and Mattressland; Silver Sponsors Mission Bank, Tri-State Pain, Our Town Magazine and Bressman Construction; and media sponsors TV2 and Murphy Boadcasting.
