Downtown Owensboro streets are now less than two weeks away from being filled with floats, and local businesses are excited to have it coming.
The 'People’s Christmas Parade' will be happening on Saturday, Dec. 18, and this Christmas parade is being put together by a new group of people. It’s comprised of Owensboro citizens that still wanted to have a parade after the last two were cancelled.
This parade is expected to have over 50 groups participating in it, and many downtown businesses are excited to have the parade taking place on their streets.
“Having the community come together is awesome, so we are going to prepare to have some hot chocolate or some Mexican traditional hot drinks so that people can come out and enjoy them," said Oralis Radilla, owner of Don Mario's.
The parade will begin at 4:30 p.m. and will travel down Second Street and many other Owensboro roads.
There’s still time to sign-up to participate in the parade. You have until Tuesday to contact the Facebook group and let them know you’re interested in making a float for this year’s parade, and for all the latest information on this parade, you can get onto Facebook and follow the 2021 owensboro people’s parade public discussion board.
