This is a night-time parade. ALL entries must have some type lights (Walking groups, Bands, etc. may have lights on hats or clothing.)

Lineup at the Swimming Pool Park area will begin @ 5:00 P.M., and entries need to be in place by 5:30 P.M. for Judging. Awards will be given from the review stand. It is our wish to make each year’s parade bigger and better. Your entry will help make the 2010 Christmas Parade a successful event for all!! PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE SANTA in your entry.  Young and old alike will wait and watch in anticipation for the Ranger Volunteer Fire Department’s big red fire engine that will bring the One Santa Claus down Main Street.
