All are welcome to participate in this night-time holiday parade through historic downtown Chesterton! Lineup is at 4:00 p.m. and step off is at 5:15 p.m. Battery-operated lights are encouraged for both marchers and vehicles.
All parade entries should enter off Porter Avenue at the Westchester Township History Museum and proceed to the right behind Chesterton Middle School. Lineup will face towards Morgan Avenue. The parade route will be heading north onto 6th Street, east on Broadway, south on Calumet Road, and west on Porter Avenue back to the Museum entrance behind Chesterton Middle School. Chamber staff will be at lineup to help coordinate and direct the order of parade entries. Limit of two vehicles or 65 feet, whichever is less.
PLEASE WATCH FOR PEDESTRIANS AT ALL TIMES
Deadline for parade applications is FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22. We will notify you by Monday, November 25 with your unit number. Since Santa and Mrs. Clause is our parade’s big finish, we’d request NO SANTAS or MRS CLAUSE be on any other floats. Thank you for your cooperation in making this a great event for our community!
Special Note: If you have a large group in your unit, please advise them of the unit number in which to meet so parents and children know where to report.
