30th Annual Invitational Christmas Parade Application

Sponsored by Paulding County Rotary Club, all proceeds after expenses go to local charities.

We also are collecting canned goods on the day of the parade for Helping Hands, INC.  Please bring all donations to registration on the morning of the parade.

The application this year will be online. All entries need to submit their application before the deadline date of November 15th in order to avoid late fees. The cut-off to participate will be November 19th.

The theme for this year's parade is "Imagine​”.  The parade is always on the first Saturday in December. This year's parade date is December 3, 2022. The parade always kicks off at 1 pm (starting time). The parade goes on rain or shine and no refunds are available if you can not attend. Registration begins at 10 AM. You must be registered and in position by 11 AM in order to be judged. You must be registered and in your assigned position by 12 noon to be in the parade.

Parade walkers have been reinstated for the Christmas parade. We ask that walkers stay with their entry group before and during the parade, for safety and uniformity. As each entry travels down the street it should not collide or merge with another entry. Candy should not be thrown from the float. Please utilize walkers to hand-out candy from the rope line, so that it will not be thrown. Walkers must carry a banner for their float, identifying that entry to the spectators.
