Plant City Christmas Parade Inc. announces that Plant City’s Home-town Christmas Parade, “Celebrate the Season – 2018”, will be held on Friday, December 7, 2018, beginning at 7:00 p.m.
A representative from each unit is expected to attend a MANDATORY safety meeting on December 3, at Plant City High School (no exceptions).
Cash prizes and a trophy will be awarded to 5 parade participants – Best High School Entry, Best Marching Unit, Best Church Entry, Best Business Entry, and the Best Overall Entry. Winners are selected by out of town judges, with no input from the current parade board or committee.
Plant City’s Home-town Christmas Parade is a family event, and everyone is invited to come out and enjoy the fun. Bring your family, friends and neighbors, and have a great time together. The parade route will start at Collins and Alsobrook Streets, travel north on Collins through downtown, turn right onto Reynolds Street, and end at the court house.
Major Sponsors for this year’s parade are Unity in the Community and Stingray Chevrolet. Thanks to the help of Unity and Stingray, the Christmas parade promises to be even better than ever as we expect to include only quality entries into the line-up. There will be beautifully decorated floats, high energy marching bands, talented church participation, civic and service groups, local business participation, and of course we expect a visit from Santa Claus himself to help us kick off the 2018 Christmas Season Celebration.
