Please line up no later than 5 pm so the parade can start on time at 5:30 pm.  We encourage everyone to add lights to their floats but if that is not possible ask all float riders to bring flashlights.

If you arrive early enough you might be able to get in line on E. Main via Church St.  If not you can access E. Main by McKinney St or driving by Grumpy Old Men in the 1300 block of E. Main.

There will be time after the parade to park your float, car etc and walk back to the park for the tree lighting at 7 pm.

See you there!

Parade Guidelines and Instructions


Only Santa in the parade is to be the “real”

Santa at the end of the parade.

  • Please complete our Parade Card with information about your organization, business or group and bring with you to the parade. The MC will use this information when announcing your float. Keep this card with you and a parade monitor will collect it when you approach the start of the parade route.
  • Participants are not allowed to throw any candy or other items from the parade float. However, “Walkers” (i.e. participants on foot) are allowed to hand out candy/items during the parade. Candy may only be passed from hand-to-hand. Under no circumstances is candy to be thrown or tossed anywhere along the parade route.
  • Please do not exit the parade route prior to the end of the parade.
  • Once your entry has started along the parade route, no one may board your float.
  • All live animals are to be bagged or the owner is responsible for immediately curbing/cleaning up after their animals.
  • Alcoholic beverages and other controlled substances are forbidden in the parade.
