MEDIA RELEASE: Cabot’s Annual Christmas Parade
Dear Community Friends:
Cabot’s Annual Christmas Parade has been scheduled for Saturday, December 7th, 2019, at 5:00pm.
The theme for this year’s parade is “A Storybook Christmas” Participants are asked to select an idea -or- image that best represents their favorite memory or interpretation of this Christmas theme & use it to design their entry/float. This year’s parade is shaping up to be one of the best ever; including several marching bands, clowns, veterans groups and of course, Santa Claus!!
The Parade Committee would like to encourage as many businesses, groups & organizations as possible to participate, by placing some type of entry in this year’s parade. Trophies will be awarded in the five categories of competition: School/Civic, Church, Business, Animal/Equestrian & General/Personal.
Entry forms, parade rules & route maps are now available at the Veterans Park Community Center, the Cabot Chamber of Commerce office & downloadable at www.cabotparks.com Forms are below. Entry deadline is Monday, December 2nd. Completed forms, along with $10 entry fee, should be sent to:
Cabot Christmas Parade P.O. Box 1101 Cabot, AR 72023
We are changing things up a bit this year!! Not only are we moving the Parade back to a Saturday night event, but we are also moving the Parade back to the route which was last used in 2005. The parade will travel West Main Street/Highway 89, beginning at Dakota Drive & continuing southward past the Old Price Cutter Shopping Center & will then make a right turn onto South First Street at the Cabot Mini-Mall Area, which will be considered the “Finish Line” of the Parade. The “Awards Presentation” Ceremony will take place immediately following the parade, at the Old Price Cutter Parking Lot, which is where the Judges’ Stage will also be located. We are looking forward to the businesses “lighting up” their store fronts & everyone enjoys the lighted Christmas decoration!!
If you should happen to have any questions -or- comments, please, feel free to contact the parade committee at (501) 920-2122 or via e-mail: email@example.com . We look forward to seeing you Saturday, December 7th, 2019 at -or- in Cabot’s Christmas Parade.
Thank you again for your anticipated support & participation in helping to make this an exciting & fun-filled holiday event.
