Eleventh Annual Lighted Holiday Parade set for Monday in Waukon

Plans are being made for the Eleventh Annual Lighted Holiday Parade in downtown Waukon scheduled for Monday, December 4, beginning at 6 p.m. The event coincides with extended Monday night business hours of Waukon retailers.

The parade will begin at the East Elementary School playground and travel Fifth Street NW south to West Main Street. Turning left onto West Main, the parade entries will venture to the stoplight intersection, where they will then turn south on to Spring Avenue for one block before turning right on to First Avenue SW and heading west up to Sixth Street SW. The entries will then turn right and head north back to the East Elementary playground.

Float entries are currently being accepted for the event. It is asked that parking for parade entrants be limited to the immediate area around East Elementary and that those involved in the parade have a pre-determined meeting site to avoid confusion and congestion at the initial parade gathering site. All entries must be lighted and cannot involve a live version of Santa Claus.

Howards Home Furnishings will be serving hot chocolate, free of charge in front of its storefront during the parade. The S & D Café will provide complimentary hot chocolate and bars for parade participants near the kitchen entrance to East Elementary in memory of Billy Roe.

For additional information, call the Waukon Chamber of Commerce office at 563-568-4110.
