Due to the construction on the downtown square, the Parade route will be slightly altered.  Once the Parade gets to the downtown square, participants will continue on Shelbyville Street and turn left onto Cora Street.  The Parade will continue on Cora Street until Crockett Street where participants will turn left and left again onto Logansport Street heading back to the Square.  Once participants come to either George Ihlo Drive, Porter Street or Tenaha Street they may turn right and return to their start point.


Plan on spending the day on the Square to shop and enjoy the Parade.  Shops will be open and many will be having their Christmas Open Houses.
