This home movie captures scenes of the Shriners Parade in Odessa in 1951. Chapters, temples, from all over North and West Texas came to participate in the parade, including El Maido Temple from El Paso, Maskat Temple from Wichita Falls, and Khiva Temple from Amarillo. Frankie Lee Cochran was likely involved with the Odessa Shriners, the KennPenn Unit of El Maido Temple.
