Parade scheduled December 12; entries accepted through November 30.
The 58th annual Killeen Christmas Parade is scheduled Saturday, December 12, at 6 p.m. in historic Downtown Killeen. Parade entries will be accepted through November 30.
The parade will be in “reverse” this year which means parade entries will have an assigned spot during the event and spectators will drive by them along the parade route.
The parade theme is “Park on Ice,” and entries are encouraged to incorporate it in their displays.
Floats, decorated vehicles and walking, marching or performing groups are welcome. All entries must be decorated on both sides and must contain at least 500 self-powered lights.
Parade entries may elect to be judged in the categories of best non-profit, best commercial or best entertaining group or may participate without competing.
The parade entry form and complete rules and regulations are available online at KilleenTexas.gov/Rec. The completed entry form, announcer script and $25 entry fee must be received at the Family Recreation Center by 5:00 p.m. November 30.
