Breckenridge’s annual Christmas Parade is just around the corner, and entry forms for anyone who wants to have a group or float in the parade are due by 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, at the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce, 100 E. Elm St.

This year’s parade, scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, features the theme of “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” The annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony in Foundation Park, on the corner of Walker Street and Breckenridge Avenue, will immediately follow the parade.

The parade is open to organizations, businesses, churches, clubs, groups, even individuals. Parade entries can include cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, trailers, bicycles, groups of walkers, even horses. There are a few rules to be followed, and a list is available at the Chamber of Commerce.

The parade route will take the floats east on Walker Street from North and South Miller Street. The parade will continue east, crossing over Breckenridge Avenue and turning left at Baylor Avenue (one block east of Breckenridge Avenue). Prior to the parade, floats/groups will line up on Miller Street, similar to how it was handled for the Homecoming Parade. After the parade, floats may tear down in the 100 and 200 blocks of East Elm, including the parking lots behind Clay’s Tires and across from the Chamber of Commerce.

All entries will be introduced when they are in front of the courthouse. Each float or entry who elects

to be judged will be judged on the interpretation of the theme (“A Charlie Brown Christmas”), creativity, and originality. The judge’s trailer will be on the north side of Walker Street in front of the courthouse.

For more information, call the Chamber of Commerce at 254-559-2301.
