Helena Christmas Parade set for Dec. 3

By GRAHAM BROOKS / Staff Writer

HELENA–The city of Helena will once again celebrate the holiday season with the 46th annual Christmas Parade slated for Saturday, Dec. 3.

The theme for this year’s parade is “Put the fire out… Santa’s coming,” as the parade will honor the city’s fire department for the outstanding service they provide to Helena residents.

The actual parade will begin at 1 p.m., but the lineup of the floats will begin as early as 9 a.m. All floats must be in place and ready to be judged by 11 a.m.

Anyone wishing to enter the parade must download a form on the city’s website.

Entrants must include their name, contact address, telephone and an introduction that the announcer will make.

Completed forms can be emailed to kym@cityofhelena.org or turned in at Helena City Hall before 9 a.m. on Dec. 3.
