Avoca Country Christmas
• 2013 Avoca Country Christmas will be Saturday,
December 14th (the Dec 7 parade was cancelled due to severe weather).
• All participants (floats, horses, wagons, bands, post honor guard, vehicles, fire trucks, etc.) need to meet across from Latham Cabinets at 819 Lester Lane. Judging will begin at 4:45 PM sharp, so you need to be lined up with lights on!!
• Parade will leave Lester Lane at
approximately 5:15 PM.
• Parade is approximately 1 mile and ends at Avoca Town Hall (222 N Old Wire Rd). Join us, after the parade,
for cookies and hot chocolate.
• No applications….no fees….just show up! We are encouraging all entries and spectators to bring canned food to
help the NWA Food Bank drive.
• No Santa please! Santa is reserved for
the founder of the parade.
• We love lights!!
• Some of the award categories include: most unique; biggest float; most lights; best overall; most Christmas spirit
