Entries needed for Christmas parade


Garden City Downtown Vision's annual Burtis Motors' White Light Night Christmas Parade is looking for entries.

Garden City Downtown Vision's annual Burtis Motors' White Light Night Christmas Parade is looking for entries.

The parade will begin at 6 p.m. Dec. 12. This year, the parade will be announced over the new and improved public address system recently updated by the city of Garden City. Also, Downtown Vision has partnered with Finney County Preservation Alliance to present "Warmin' at the Windsor." As part of its fundraising efforts, the alliance will sell 12-ounce cups of homemade chicken and noodles soup or chili for $3 per cup. Serving begins at 4 p.m. at the Downtown Vision office, 413 N. Main St., and the to-go-only service is designed so people can eat as they stroll around downtown waiting for the parade to begin.

Main Street — from the Finney County Exhibition Building parking lot to Hackberry Street — will be darkened with the exception of the Christmas lights. Parade participants will line up at the parking lot at the Finney County Fairgrounds at 5 p.m. Vendors will offer coffee, hot chocolate, roasted nuts, hot dogs and popcorn for the parade watchers. Prior to the parade, Commerce Bank's TubaChristmas will begin at 3 p.m. on Grant Avenue.

Parade entry registration, which is due Monday, may be made by calling 276-0891 or e-mailing vision@gcdowntown.com.
