Farmington has no reason to be Missouri-ble this Christmas

November 29, 2012 by  

Christmas is getting closer and more and more communities throughout the country are having parades and holding various activities to celebrate this fact. The Farmington Chamber of Commerce has not forgotten that it is not only children who get excited about the holidays, and that many people look forward to having extra time to spend with their families and friends. The Chamber is celebrating by presenting the annual Christmas parade and Winter Wonderland.

The theme for this year’s Christmas parade is ‘Reason for the Season’ and will feature the usual floats, marching bands, community groups, and local businesses. There is no fee to enter the parade and everyone is welcome. However, there are some rules to be obeyed. For example, each float must be decorated with 500 lights or more.

Businesses are welcome to take part but their float or vehicle must have more than just a sign bearing the company name. To go the extra mile, they may possibly arrange with Farmington printing companies to create a banner that can be added to a float as one design element. There will be prizes for the top three parade participants – first place wins $250, second place wins $150, and third place wins $100.

Winter Wonderland will take place from December 3 – 21 from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm each day. It will consist of various activities, including a G Scale Christmas train set display. Food will also be gathered for local food banks.

The Christmas Parade will take place on December 3 beginning at 6:00 pm. It will travel from Columbia and A Street to Long Memorial Hall. For more information, call 573-756-2215.
