CALVERT CITY LIONS CLUB CHRISTMAS PARADE
This is the 63rd year for the parade and Calvert City has the honor and distinction of having the longest, continuous-running Christmas parade in Western Kentucky. Once again, this year’s parade will be at night and the theme is “Christmas Lights Everywhere!”
Businesses, churches, and organizations are encouraged to enter a float in the parade. The parade entries are requested to assemble at Pathway Baptist Church at 4:45 pm. There is no pre-registration for the parade. Floats will be judged at 5:30 p.m. with the parade kicking off at 6:00 p.m. Cash prizes will be awarded for best use of lights on a float, best use of lights for a golf cart, best float that represents our theme, and overall best float. Float entries other than the Lions Club’s float may not include Santa Claus.
The parade route will begin at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and KY 95 and then proceed along Fifth Avenue to the Calvert City Civic Center where Santa will meet with the children and the Calvert City Lions will provide free hotdogs and drinks to all participants.
