CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Buc Day parade will be held Sunday at 7 p.m. with all kinds of excitement added.

There will be new floats added and you will be able to see new colorful pirate-themed floats that will have LED and specialty lights. The new floats added this year are for the city and for CITGO.

Construction of the new floats began in February.

CITGO's parade float will be a pirate ship. The city's float with Mayor Paulette Guajardo aboard will be decorated with a treasure map and an island for a treasure theme.

“It's going to be really fun and there’s going to be lots going on this is such a historical event," Guajardo said. "We have a new I guess tradition that we may begin. We are all city council and we are all going to be on a float together for the first time."
