E-T staff report

The annual Christmasville light parade is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 27, in downtown Stephenville at the City Park.

The Christmasville Light Parade is scheduled for Nov. 27

No parade entry will be allowed to provide a live Santa Claus during the parade. The Christmas Parade Committee will provide Santa and he will be the very last float/entry in the parade. He will give the signal to "light up" the Christmas tree in the plaza following the parade.

In addition to the parade and tree lighting, the committee is planning rooftop fireworks, a Small Business Saturday event, Breakfast with Santa, all-day activities and tons of photo opportunities.

Parade participants need to be in the City Park Amphitheatre Parking Lot by 5 p.m. Parade staff will place participants/floats in correct order prior to parade start.

Parade rules do not allow anything, including candy, to be thrown from vehicles. It will

be dark and organizers do not want any patrons to be struck by flying/thrown objects or leave trash in the streets. However, handing out Christmas-themed items is encouraged. Some examples are glow sticks, candy canes, coupons, Santa hats, etc.

Horseback riders, bike riders and people who just want to walk in the parade are welcome to participate, but will still need to be "lit up" with Christmas lights.
