Edmonton Christmas parade planning underway

By Kim Harwood, Executive Director, Edmonton Metcalfe Chamber of Commerce

To say that it takes planning to pull off a parade would be an understatement. Thankfully, Chris Huffman has worked the local parade for years. We are excited to host another night parade and we hope to have a large number of parade entries again this year.

Last year was so much fun despite the rain, and hopes are high that this year will be as good or better!

As of today, there are 13 entries and plenty of time for Churches, Clubs, the School, businesses, and individuals to put a float together or decorate a vehicle, ATV, or your horses for the event December 9, 2023 at 5pmCT.

Make plans to be in this year's parade, help us to make it great for our children and the community.

There will be no dirt bikes, motorcycles, or 4-wheelers in the parade. All motorized vehicles must have a steering wheel to participate.

Please note all parade entries, and parade workers must enter on the Ralph Edwards Rd. (the road that runs down by the Health Department and the old High School). The road across from ACE Hardware will be blocked off until parade time.

Judging will start promptly at 3pm!

Plaques designed by Kayla Blythe Jessee of The Trophy Shop will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in the Float divisions and 1st and 2nd places for the Vehicles, Mules/Gators/ATV, and Miscellaneous divisions. Do not wait, submit your Parade Entry Form from the Chamber today.
