2010 Christmas Parade

Dear Christmas Parade Participant,

It is time for the 31st annual Bonne Terre Christmas Parade sponsored by the
Bonne Terre Chamber of Commerce. We are asking for your participation in this
year’s parade. We need lighted floats, singers, walking groups, bands, or any type of
contribution that will add to the parade and increase the Christmas spirit of all.

This year the parade will be Monday, December 6th at 7:00 p.m. The theme
is “Christmas Characters”. Cash prizes in the amount of 1st place $200, 2nd place $150,
3rd place $100, 4th place $75, and 5th place $50 will be awarded to the best decorated
floats following the theme. There will only be ONE Santa & Mrs. Claus in the
parade. They will be riding on the Chamber float, the last unit in the parade. Any
other Santa (St. Nick, Father Christmas, etc.) or Mrs. Claus is not allowed. This will
avoid confusion for small children. Stuffed or fake Santa’s are acceptable. For safety
purposes, please do not throw anything from your entry. You may hand distribute
items by someone walking along side the float.

We have been working with the Bonne Terre Police Department to improve the
line-up and traffic flow of the parade for the safety of everyone. The parade will start at
the intersection of Desoto Rd and Division Street. It will proceed south on Division to
Main Street, east on Main to the Bonne Terre Post Office. The Parade will disperse at
Centennial Park in front of the Bonne Terre Post Office.

All entries need to check in with Chamber staff on Benham at the entrance to
Veteran’s Park beginning at 5:30 p.m. After finding out your line up number, please
proceed to line up spots behind the Police Station.

To register your entry fill out the attached form (Download Here) and mail or bring to the Chamber
office located at the Shepard House. Deadline to register your entry is December 1,
2010 at 1:00 p.m. Please provide the name of your entry, name of a contact person,
phone number and whether or not you wish for your entry to be judged as a float. For
more information, please call the Chamber office at 358-4000.
