The annual Christmas Parade of Lights is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Saturday, December 4, 2010 and everyone is invited to participate.
Heritage Holiday board members are accepting parade float applications. The entry fee is $50 for commercial businesses and $25 for community organizations (there are reduced additional fees for extra vehicles). Applications must be received by Heritage Holiday no later than 12 noon, December 3, 2010.
All parade entries must have working Christmas lights and no Santa's are allowed.
All entries will be judged and awards will be presented at the first City Council meeting in January 2011. Cash awards will be handed out to the first, second and third place winners in each category. The Best Lighted school entry will receive a certificate. Mayor Larry Melton will also award the Mayor's award for the Best Overall entry in the parade.
This is an exciting opportunity for any organization to show off their Christmas spirit by participating in this community tradition.
