All Christmas Parade participants should be in position by 12 noon so the judges can score all entries. The parade theme is “Through the Eyes of a Child”. Lions Club or Parade Committee members will assist you in staging. The parade will commence at 1 p.m., flowing to the north down Main Street into the downtown area then east onto Broadway Street to conclude the downtown segment of the parade. If at all possible we encourage parade entrants to go south on Park Street past Cedar County Memorial Hospital, then east on Hospital Road in front of Community Springs Nursing Home so that those unable to join us downtown might have the pleasure of seeing your parade entry. If you have questions please call the Chamber of Commerce office (417-876-4154) through Friday between 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
