2013 Christmas Parade

Saturday, December 7, 2013

The Milan Chamber cordially invites you and your organization to participate in the parade with the theme of “Lights Aglow and Mistletoe.”


Your sponsorship will help support the continued efforts of the annual Christmas parade and downtown activities.

“Lights Aglow & Mistletoe”

New this year is a children’s coloring contest for kindergarten through 2nd grade. The coloring page will be in the October edition of The Milan Eagle, along with information on where to submit the coloring page by November 30th.

All businesses and organizations within the city limits are invited to participate in a decorating contest. Judging will take place Friday, December 5th at dusk.

Participants in the Christmas parade will be judged during line-up. Remember, no throwing of candy. Please hand out candy at sidewalks.

All entrants must check in at the Paddock School roundabout on Michigan Avenue to obtain their parade sequence numbers and directions for line-up starting at 4:30 p.m. The parade starts at 6:00 p.m. sharp.

Judging will be based on the most original use of “Lights Aglow & Mistletoe” for window and parade entries, wtih the additional category of “most patriotic” for parade entries, in remembrance of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.

Winners for all categories will be announced after the Christmas tree lighting.
