Christmas Parade theme selected

FALLBROOK — On December 6, the 27th annual Fallbrook Christmas Parade will march down Main Avenue with the public-submitted theme “Fallbrook’s Christmas Spirit.” The theme gives entrants a chance to demonstrate their decorating abilities and entertain the thousands who line downtown to watch the area’s largest nighttime parade.

The winner of this creative pen contest is Bennielyn Verrett, a Fallbrook resident. She will be featured in a special car in the parade.

There are several other notable entries signed up for the parade this year. One is The American, a 1902 horse-drawn steam pumper that appeared here in 2004 and is making a much-anticipated return visit. New to the parade this year will be the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, which will be paying a visit to Major Market before the parade begins. The Shriners’ Tin Lizzies will make a return appearance.

Entry deadline for the parade is November 26. Download an application at Parade sponsors and volunteers to help the night of the parade will be greatly appreciated. Call (760) 728-5845 for more information.
