this theme to emphasize the fact that the Christmas season is so much more than
what society has made it to be," said Fancher. "We hope our
participants will step back and portray what makes Christmas simple, whether it
be homemade Christmas gifts, homemade decorations, and/or the true meaning of
Christmas. We hope our community will get back to the basics of Christmas this
Registration fees are $10 for floats, $10 for vehicles
