"Pray for Peace" celebrates one year

WICHITA FALLS, TX -

Hundreds of classic cars, motorcycles, and even a few fire trucks may have driven through your town Saturday.

The "Pray for Peace" parade, started this morning in Wichita Falls and made its way through Texoma.  

Organizer of the parade, Harry Patterson wanted to do this to celebrate the one year anniversary of his Pray for Peace project, which started after the police shootings in Dallas last year.

The route of the parade made a heart and at the front of the line was the famous green army truck.

"We feel like hopefully it's made a difference," said Patterson.  "I had a call the other day from an individual that said 'Every time I see the Patterson sign I just stop and pray.'  I hope that's taken part more and more all the time and that we just want to keep it going and do our part and make people think that the key to it is peace."

The green army truck with the "Pray for Peace" banner has been all over the country.

The most recent trip it took was to Houston after Hurricane Harvey.
