Songs of Christmas for the Williston Christmas parade

-A A +A

Everyone who celebrates Christmas has a favorite song from the season.

Maybe it’s O Holy Night or Winter Wonderland or Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer.

This year the Williston Area Chamber of Commerce is giving those who participate in its parade a chance to show off their imaginations and creativity.

This year’s parade kicks off at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2 and is themed, “The Songs of Christmas.”

Floats, walkers, musicians and all participants are encouraged to pick a theme and then have a lot of fun customizing your parade entry to your favorite Christmas song.

The Chamber will award three trophies during the Light Up Williston festivities at the pavilion following the parade. Honors will be bestowed for Most Original, Best Depiction of Theme and Best in Show.

Entrants will need to register at the Chamber to be in the parade beginning Oct. 9.

For more information, call 352-528-5552 or visit www.willistonfl.com.

At 7 p.m., following the parade, make your way to Williston’s Heritage Park where the townspeople will gather to Light Up Williston with an hour of music, entertainment and family fun in the pavilion.

It’s community spirit at its best as Williston ushers in the Christmas season and is capped with the city’s mayor and Miss Williston illuminating the city’s Christmas tree and decorations.
