The 62nd Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade is scheduled to make its way up Second Street Nov. 19.

“Storybook Christmas” is the theme of this year’s event.

The parade begins at 2 p.m., with line-up at 1 p.m. Floats, bands, walking units, businesses and more are planned. Everyone is welcome to be in the parade.

If residents have not turned in their registration form yet — there is still time.

To participate in the parade the Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce must have a registration form by Nov. 11.

Registration forms are available at the Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce office, 1028 N. Second St. Forms may be emailed or mailed by calling the Chamber office at 274-4556.

Plans for this year’s parade include children meeting with Santa following the parade (around 3 p.m.) in City Park at the stage (weather permitting). There will also be antique carriage rides from 3 to 5 p.m. starting at City Park.  

Also, parents should remind their children to  turn in their Christmas Coloring Contest forms by Nov. 15. Prizes are to be announced the day of the parade and pictures will be put in the window of the chamber office.

After the parade event, the Chillicothe Optimist Club members have arranged for free movies for children starting at 3:30 p.m. in the Town Theatre.
