Posted Nov 23, 2021 5:02 PM

The annual Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade presented by KJCK begins at 5:30 p.m. Friday. The parade route begins in the parking lot at the old Junction City High School, proceeds down Eisenhower, turns east on 6th Street, goes downtown and goes a short distance north on North Washington Street to 8th Street.

According to Dawn Stephens, Chamber of Commerce Member Relations Director, as of Monday there were 37 entries in the parade, and more can be accepted if there is interest in participating. "We'll take entries all the way up until Wednesday. "

Stephens loves the spirit of the Christmas parade. "I love how many people come out to it, but I also love the fact that all the entries are really Christmas themed. We have lit up floats, we have tons of children on these entries on these floats walking around. It's just a great all-around event for our community."

The theme for the parade is "Christmas at the Movies." Activities will come to a conclusion when Santa Claus and Mayor Jeff Underhill flip a switch turning on the holiday lights in Heritage Park. 

The parade will be broadcast on 107.9 FM / 1420 KJCK AM.
