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.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
