Instead of having a specific theme for this year’s White County Christmas, we have decided to let you get creative with how you show your holiday spirit! Just make sure it lights the way for Santa, as we will be officially welcoming him to Carmi at the end of the parade. Floats and walking units of all sizes are welcome to join in the fun! Your entries do not have to be elaborate. Decorated golf carts/razors (street legal and registered with the city of Carmi), church choirs walking through caroling, bands- any of these would be a great addition to this year’s parade. We only ask that Santa not be part of your entry. We encourage all businesses, churches, youth organizations, or schools throughout White County to join us to celebrate Christmas in this lighted parade!
Throwing of candy will not be allowed from floats. Instead, it must be handed out by those walking.
This entry form MUST BE SUBMITTED BY November 22nd to guarantee a spot in the parade. Our parade will be held at 5:30pm on Saturday, November 27th with line-up at First Baptist Church, crossing Oak, then following Cherry Street, turning onto Main Cross Street(s), crossing Main Street, then turning onto Robinson down to the new City Park (next to First-Mid parking lot). After you have submitted your entry form, line up instructions will follow.
Please fill out and return to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 22nd :
