â€śIt's absolutely free!â€ť
Newly appointed Herald general manager Rick Nunez wants everyone to know there are absolutely no fees to enter the Herald's 28th Annual Christmas Parade.
â€śWe've had more and more entries as we get closer to the deadline,â€ť said Nunez, â€śBut there is still plenty of time to enter and it's free to enter. There are no fees at all.â€ť
â€śThe deadline is Nov. 15, to enter a float to be judged,â€ť Nunez said, â€śThe parade will be held Dec. 7, and we welcome all entries.â€ť
Although participants are free to create a float to their liking, there is a theme to this year's parade, as usual.
â€śOur theme is 'Christmas Through The Ages,'â€ť the general manager said and encourages potential participants to use their imagination.
â€śWe want them to think about how people celebrated Christmas in the past,â€ť Nunez said and continued with the idea of perhaps thinking outside of the box.
â€śIt could even be something like out of the caveman days,â€ť Nunez gave as a diverse example.
