Miracle on Main Parade starts holiday season

| November 18, 2015

COSHOCTON – Start your holiday season off with a Coshocton tradition – the Miracle on Main Parade.

The annual holiday parade will be held on Friday, Nov. 20. Lineup starts at 5:30 p.m. at the fairgrounds and the parade will begin at 6:30 p.m. working its way down Seventh Street to Main Street to Third Street.

“There are no requirements for being in the parade,” said Rick Williamson, from Our Town Coshocton, which is sponsoring the parade. “We just ask that you have a festive float of some kind that goes along with the holiday theme.”

You can register in advance for the parade at the Gift Depot on Hickory Street or stop by the fairgrounds at 5:30 p.m. to fill out a form and get in the lineup.

“No numbers will be assigned,” Williamson said. “We will just line people up as they come in.”

After the parade children can meet with Santa on the Fourth Street side of the court square.

“The Coshocton Fire Department will bring him there,” Williamson said. “I think they’ve done this every Christmas parade. They are always a big help.”

Each child who stops to talk to Santa will be given a gift and there also will be refreshments on the court square and Williamson said other businesses on Main Street are planning on having special activities.

Judges will award prizes to parade participants and WTNS will broadcast the event.

“Christmas is the holiday that everybody comes out and gets together with family and friends,” Williamson said. “Our Town sees this as an event to keep people coming to Main Street, which is a good thing for the community.”

He also encouraged people to please pay attention to the REACT and sheriff’s office auxiliary members who will be directing traffic the evening of the parade.

“There are going to be a lot of people out and we want everybody to be safe,” Williamson said. “Please pay attention to them.”
