Plans being made for Christmas parade

| September 18, 2012

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton Towne Centre Association extends an invitation to all city and county schools, local businesses, civic organizations and service groups for participation in the Main Street Magic Christmas Parade.

The parade is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16. Line-up begins at 5 p.m. at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds. The parade will travel north on Seventh Street and west on Main Street with disbandment near Stewart Field on Water Street.

This is an excellent opportunity to promote your school’s spirit, demonstrate your organization’s service to the community, promote your business and encourage shopping locally or to show everyone just how proud you are that you live in Coshocton.     

You are encourage to participate as appropriate for the event with floats, motorized or walking units, carolers, etc. All units are requested to have lights and complete the entire parade route. Please remember that candy may not be thrown from any moving units, only handed to the children in the crowd.

As with last year’s parade, the committee is planning to feature a showcase of local mascots. From businesses to school sports teams, we are seeking mascots to participate and join Mr. and Mrs. Frosty, our Gingerbread Boy and Girl, Santa Bear and Rudolph Reindeer.

Applications for this year’s parade can be picked up at Miller Pharmacy, Carroll’s Men’s Shop, the Coshocton County Beacon or WNTS radio. The parade committee is accepting calls at 622-1806 if you would like to have the entry form mailed to you.

The deadline to submit the entry form is Monday, Nov. 12. Please return the entry form to Coshocton Towne Centre, P.O. Box 795, Coshocton, OH 43812 or fax the entry to 740-622-8460.

The parade committee is made up of volunteers who organize and fund raise to support this event. Your help is always welcome.
