The Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce has its annual Christmas Parade starting at 6 p.m. This year’s theme is “Inside Santa’s Workshop” and promises to provide spectators with plenty of music, lights, and beautiful floats, a press release said.
The parade will begin at Corporate Center, on the corner of Lafayette and Laboratory Road. From there, the parade will travel down Lafayette to the Oak Ridge Turnpike. It will continue west on the Turnpike to Oak Ridge High School. The judge’s stand will be located in front of the Chamber.
Those participating in the parade will line up in the parking lot of Corporate Center, on the corner of Lafayette and Laboratory Road beginning at 4 p.m. Detailed information will be e-mailed to all who have registered an entry.
The Chamber will be accepting entries online through Monday, Dec. 9. Entry forms are available on the Chamber’s website at www.oakridgechamber.org.
The Chamber will need lots of Santa’s elves to serve as volunteer parade marshals to make the parade a safe, fun, and successful event. To volunteer and be put on Santa’s “nice” list, contact Greta Ownby at firstname.lastname@example.org or (865) 483-1321.
