Time is running out to enter the Clintonville Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Christmas parade, which will be held Monday at 6 p.m.

Deadline for entries into the parade, the theme of which this year is “Merry and Bright,” is 4 p.m. Wednesday. The chamber office will be closed Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday. To enter, call the chamber at 715-823-4606 or email administrativeassistant@clintonvillewichamber.com.

Entries can be lit or unlit, but must not have Santa or Mrs. Claus on them. Judges ask that group or business names are visible on the entry; categories are businesses and nonprofits. The judging will take place before the beginning of the parade. Any group or business that would like to have their entry judged needs to enter on Memorial Drive and be in the lineup no later than 5:15 p.m. Monday. Entries arriving after that time are welcome to participate in the parade but will not be judged.

After the parade, children are invited to visit and have photos taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Fox Valley Technical College from 6:45-7:30 p.m. Cookies, beverages and goody bags will be offered.
