1.It’s Free to participate in the Parade! The cost to participate in the Christmas Parade is free. That means that if you love the idea of being connected with thousands looking on with eyes ready for the wonder and joy of Christmas fun, then you should definitely consider this great opportunity!

2. Great Exposure for a Business or Non-Profit – Are you a business wanting more and more people to know about you and what you offer? By participating in the parade you can you showcase your business or non-profit while people stand and sit on both sides of the road watching you participate in the parade. Talk about great FREE ADVERTISEMENT!

3. Giving Back to the Community – Did you attend a parade as a child or youth and have fond memories of watching the parade? Well just imagine if no one took the time or effort to participate in a parade. That would really stink to have a parade so short that it lasted 4 minutes!

4. Types of Entries of Varied – Don’t fret! You don’t have a huge hayride trailer to put up a monster Parade entry! Have no fear. The City of Elizabethtown is accepting many varied entries for the parade. Here is the list.

5. It’s Fun! Coming together as a community and seeing the firetrucks, parade floats, people lined up along the streets and preparing to enter Christmas is quite a great experience. Whether you’ve been to 10 parades or you’ve never been before, local community Christmas parades have a fun magical feel to them and its something perfect for all ages! By participating in the parade you’ll be able to not only experience the parade from a new and unique perspective, but you’ll also be able to really allow others to learn more and see more about you!

We’ll be posting more details about the parade as it becomes available. Bring your lawn chairs, come on out bundled with coats and get ready to create memories of a lifetime for the whole family!
