This 68th Annual Holiday Parade has a fun and lively theme.  “We are very excited,” said Narr, “This years theme is a fun one that we hope a lot of people really jump on to and have a good time with.  It is ‘Christmas in Paradise’, so we’re expecting to see several hula skirts and fun lays and different things of that nature.”

If you have a good idea for this years parade, you are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.  “Of course we have several different categories,” Narr said, “Bands, judged floats, non-judged, cars, we run the whole gamut and we’d love to have them all.   It is always fun if they can tie it into the parade route theme, just to make it a little more festive.”

The parade is schedule for November 22nd at 10:00 a.m.  If you are interested in entering into the parade, you can do so for free as long as the entry form is turned in by November 7th.  After that, a $25 fee will be charged.  Entry forms can be found at the Chillicothe Commerce Center or you can print one off from the website at  If you have any other questions, you can contact the Chamber 660-646-4050.
