Christmas parade taking entries

People are invited to register floats for the annual Christmas Lights Parade, sponsored by the Madras-Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce.

This year’s theme is “Heritage and Legends of Christmas,” for the holiday parade which will glitter around Sahalee Park starting at 6 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 7.

The evening begins with the lighting of the town Christmas tree and singing of Christmas carols at the park, just before the parade.

Following the parade, children are invited to have their pictures taken with Santa Claus at the nearby Madras Bowl and Pizza.

Last year, there were over 30 lighted floats entered in the parade. Trophies are given to the top floats in the categories of: best overall, best theme, best lights, best business and best nonbusiness individual.

To enter a float in the parade, contact the chamber at 541-475-2350.
