Christmas parade set for Saturday after Thanksgiving
In Nov. 19 Issue

This year's Russell Springs Christmas Parade will take place at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 28 on Main St., according to parade coordinator Kenvie Reese, who is inviting everyone to come out and get in the holiday spirit.

This year's theme is "Fondest Memories of a Country Christmas" and lining up begins at the fairgrounds around 3 p.m. and the floats start up Main Street at 5 p.m. to kick off the parade.

Reese said numerous parties had already entered the parade and the deadline to enter into the parade is Friday, Nov. 20.

He noted there is a $25 entry fee for anyone wishing to have their floats judged in the overall contest. This year there will be $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place and $250 for third place and all entrants this year will be placed in one category.

There is no fee to enter the parade but not be judged for a prize, he said.

With a large number of entrants expected, Reese, who is a member of the Russell Springs Downtown Revitalization Committee, said he expected another big turnout for this year's edition.

This is the second year the Downtown Revitalization Committee has been in charge of running the parade and Reese said everyone should expect the same-type parade as in the past.

"Hopefully, this year will be even better," Reese said. "We've learned from our mistakes and hope that the parade is better for it."

He urged that the committee was still in need of volunteers for the 33rd annual parade and other, future downtown events.

Much like years past, onlookers can expect various floats, horses, clubs, pageant winners and classic cars to go along with the guest of the evening, Santa Claus.

With a downtown beautification project underway and the construction of a new municipal building on Main St., many folks will be able to get an up close look at how far Main St. has come this year.

Numerous businesses, organizations, clubs, churches and schools will participate in this year's parade, he said. Last year, more than 60 entrants participated in the parade.

For more information about the parade or how to enter, contact the Parade Coordinator Kenvie Reese at  270-585-5296.
