Float entries sought for Nov. 20 Christmas parade

Organizers of Hillsboro?s Christmas parade on Nov. 20 are challenging groups, organizations, neighborhoods and even neighbors to participate in a friendly float competition.

Sue Wadkins, lead organizer on behalf of the local Chamber of Commerce promotions committee, said the parade will cap a full day of Christmas activities, including a chili feed and Christmas market at city hall.

The theme for the day and the parade is ?Spirit of the Season.? Wadkins is hoping to collect prizes to be awarded to floats that best depict the theme.

Because the parade down Main Street will begin at 6 p.m., Wadkins encourages float planners to incorporate holiday lights.

For more information about the parade or entering a float, call Wadkins at 620-947-2844.
