The Rome Christmas Parade is slated for Tuesday, December 3rd. If you plan to participate, you must apply by this Friday (if you want to avoid a late fee). Applications are available online at www.romechristmasparade.com. The fee is $100. After Friday, a late fee of $50 will be added, asserts Janet Byington, parade co-chair. Money will go back into the community. The parade line-up will be posted on the website this Saturday, adds Byington.
This year’s theme is “Let It Be Christmas Everywhere”. So if you would like to create a Beatles-themed float, go for it, urges Byington.
The parade is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. In the event of inclement weather, it will be moved to Thursday, December 5th.
