This year the Holts Summit Christmas parade will begin at 2:00 pm on December 8th. This parade has become a tradition in Holts Summit dating back to before Holts Summit was incorporated as a city. The route for the parade will be slightly changed this year due to a new staging area at St. Andrew church and St. Andrew Drive. The parade will then proceed onto Branch Road and Center Street to the usual route of right onto South Summit Drive, through town, ending at Summit Plaza. The deadline for registering for entry into the parade is December 3rd. Call City Hall at 573-896-5600 for details.
So far about 20 floats, 30 classic cars, JC Marching Band, and of course, Santa will be there. Many more and various sign ups are expected by parade day. Usually we see a variety of ATVs, horses, riding lawn mowers and just about anything on wheels. Get ready for plenty of candy and gifts to be distributed.
