We would like to invite you to participate in the Uptown Jackson Christmas Parade. The theme for 2019 is “A Christmas Candy Christmas”. This year’s parade is proudly presented by Uptown Jackson Revitalization Organization.
On the attached PDF form you will find information and rules regarding the parade as well as an entry form. Please read all rules prior to planning your float and/or associated activities. The parade will begin at Southern Bank on Main/Farmington Rd. and end at the Frozen Food Lockers in Uptown Jackson.
The parade will be limited to the first 100 entries.
Please keep in mind that we will be giving away prizes in three categories. We are encouraging parade participants to use lights, chicken wire, and this year’s theme to help bring our parade to life. The Grand Marshall’s Award will focus on those floats that decorate closest to the parade theme. The Mayor’s Choice Award will focus on the use of lights and the Uptown Choice will be chosen based on the most original float.
Forms received on or prior to November 22, 2019 will have an entry fee of $35 or $15 for not-for-profits. Forms received after November 22, 2019 will have an entry fee of $40 or $20 for not-for-profits. Please make checks payable to Uptown Jackson Revitalization Organization.
You will be notified prior to the event of your position in the parade and any additional details regarding the events of the day. Please contact Hunter Williams with Century 21—Ashland Realty at 573-380-3504 with any questions or concerns.
In addition to the traditional festivities, we will also be having pictures with Santa, storytelling, shopping spree giveaways and much more following the parade. Join us in Uptown Jackson for all the fun and be sure to spread the word! There is sure to be something fun for all ages!
