The 11th annual "Wonderful World of Christmas" Parade is scheduled for beautiful downtown Cherokee in just a few days. Float entries are due in to the Chamber office by this Friday, November 27, so don't forget to get your entry in. The parade will start at 6 p.m. on Thursday December 3.
Floats must have a Christmas theme, and the use of lighting and music on the floats is encouraged. Each participant must have a sign or banner in the parade to identify their entry, and all float entries are asked to please not have "Santa" on their float, as Santa will be at the the beginning of the parade, and the presence of more than one Santa might confuse the children in attendance.
There will be two categories of floats to be judged - Business and Non-profit - and judging will be done during the Parade. Awards will be given based on the best use of lights and overall creativity.
Please submit Parade entries to the Cherokee Chamber of Commerce; 416 W. Main St.; Cherokee, IA 51012 ; telephone number 712-225-6414; FAX number 712-225-2803.
