Thorndale Christmas parade route changed for Saturday

THOR NDA LE—The annual Thorndale Christmas parade and related festivities will be held Saturday, Dec. 4, according to Deana Caffey, Thorndale Chamber of Commerce spokesperson.

Line-up for parade judging will be at noon and the parade will begin at 1 p.m., she said. “Ribbons will be awarded in various categories for entries and winners will be announced as the entries go through the parade.”

ROUTE CHANGED—“ The parade will begin at Michalk, same as usual, but will turn east on Front street instead of West and proceed down two blocks to Elliot before turning South and returning to the Michalk starting point,” Caffey said.

“We feel this change will resolve some safety issues we have had in the past, with a conflict between by-standers and floats and other parade entries trying to return to their starting points for unloading,” she explained.

Parade entry forms are still being accepted. “Anyone who would like to participate is encouraged to do so,” Caffey said.

To request an entry form or for more information, call Donna Harris, 898-2427, or Deana Caffey, 898-5189.

“Entries for the parade are accepted right up to parade start time,” Caffey said, “but entries not in place at noon for judging will not get judged.”
