Now is the time to start assembling holiday-themed floats for the Numerica Hometown Holiday Parade, welcoming Santa to downtown Kennewick on December 1. More than 5,000 people are expected to line the Kennewick Avenue parade route to celebrate Santa’s arrival, participate in Claus Plaza activities and shop local merchants.
New this year, Numerica Credit Union will award a $250 gift card to the best float design and $100 to the most inspired second place entry. Organizations, businesses and individuals are encouraged to participate. Entry is free and applications are due November 18.
In response to last year’s higher than expected turnout for the first-time event, organizers are increasing efforts to actively recruit unique and entertaining parade entries. “People had a blast last year,” said Brandon Lange, Recreation, Facility and Marketing Supervisor at the City of Kennewick. “It’s an opportunity for kids, families and our community to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year, and be entertained by creative and festive floats, musicians and performers.”
Floats and participants congregate at 9:30a on December 1 for the 10:30-11a parade. Visit Go2Kennewick.com/Holidays for application and details.
