Hometown Christmas Parade ~ “Winter Wonderland”
Don’t miss the 2014 Hometown Christmas Parade sponsored by the Davie County Chamber of Commerce on Saturday, November 22 in historic downtown Mocksville.
This year’s parade theme is “Winter Wonderland,” and all types of entries are welcome, from horseback riders and single vehicles to full-blown floats featuring performers and folks walking in a group. First-place prize for the parade participants is $75; second place wins $50 and third place earns $25.
There are a couple of tips you should keep in mind as you prepare your parade entry. Candy can be tossed to the crowd (so long as you don’t entice children into the street where they might be hurt by the procession), but Santas are not allowed. He’s already slated to appear on the Chamber of Commerce float, and someone who’s as busy as Saint Nick is at this time of year doesn’t want to overbook!
Don’t Miss Out ~ Registration Deadline November 17
If you snooze you’ll lose—the deadline for applications for the Bed Race and the Hometown Christmas Parade is Monday, November 17.
