The 25th annual Calera Christmas parade will be held Saturday, Dec. 8 at 11:00 a.m. Line-up will begin at 10:00 on the Service Road near the newly opened Dawg House Pizza. A fire department representative will be available there to put all entries in line. The fire department asks that instead of an entry fee, participants bring five non-perishable food items which will be used for the annual Needy Family food drive for Calera residents. The theme this year is “Childhood Memories” and trophies will be given in the following categories: Individual entry, group entry and fireman’s choice.
The parade will travel from the service road north, Washington and then south down McKinley past the fire department. Santa will return to the fire station and visit with the kids who want make sure and get those last- minute Christmas wishes in.
Cub Scout Troop 670 will be participating in the parade by walking, riding bikes and pulling wagons. They ask those attending the parade to bring non-perishable food items that can be given to scouts as they pass by in the parade.
