More than 100 organizations and individuals have already registered to be a part of the Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce’s annual Christmas Parade to be held on Saturday, December 8. This year’s theme is “A Fantasy of Lights,” and it promises to provide spectators with plenty of music, lights, and beautiful floats, a press release said. The first official entry of the parade is always a crowd favorite: the award-winning Oak Ridge High School Marching Band.
Other entries will include skaters, adoptable animals, antique and classic vehicles, dancers, horses, and much more, the press release said. All of these entries help lead the way for the most important part of the parade: the arrival of Santa Claus in Oak Ridge. Santa will be helped along his way by the Oak Ridge Fire Department.
Sponsor of this year’s parade is The Cowperwood Company. There is no cost to participate.
