2010 Christmas Parade of Lights and Winterfest Festival December 3rd In Marianna

Santa Claus is coming to town, and Main Street Marianna wants to invite the public to celebrate his arrival with the annual festive Christmas Parade. Entries are being sought for the 2010 “Christmas Parade of Lights” parade, which will be held at 5:30 PM on Friday, December 3 in downtown Marianna. Our theme this year is “Christmas Parade of Lights” and Main Street would like to encourage every parade entry to be decorated with as many colorful Christmas lights as possible. Main Street hopes families, churches, youth groups, civic organizations and businesses will enter a float in this year’s parade and would also like to encourage church choirs to carol through the parade. Main Street plans to have a parade announcer that will be located in front of Confederate Park on Highway 90. This is an annual fundraising event for Main Street Marianna. The entry fee for the Parade is $25.00. The proceeds from the parade will be earmarked for downtown improvements.
