Cherokee's "Wonderful World of Christmas Parade" is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday through Downtown Cherokee.
Floats will have a Christmas theme, colorful lighting, and music, and the annual Parade's overall theme is "Wonderful World of Christmas."
Judging of the Parade entries will be during the Parade and awards will be given for the best use of lights, and overall creativity. The entries will be judged on two categories - Non-Profit or Business.
As usual, Santa will be leading this year's parade and will make a special stop at the intersection of Main and Second streets to draw the winner of the Holiday Raffle. If you have not purchased your Holiday Raffle ticket yet, you may purchase them at: Chamber of Commerce, Gasthaus, Jane's Sanford Lane Salon, Copper Cup, or Cherokee State Bank.
Tickets are $5 each and two winners will be selected to receive $1,000 ($500 in Chamber Bucks and $500 in cash)
The annual "Wonderful World of Christmas Parade" route will begin on West Main Street at the County Courthouse and proceed east down Main Street to Euclid Avenue, where it will disband.
