Is that the Steubenville Nutcracker Christmas Parade I see approaching?

We are coming up on that time of the year again!  The leaves still have not fallen, but as soon as that occurs the holiday season is close behind.

Applications for the “2018 Steubenville Sights & Sounds of Christmas Parade: Nutcracker Magic 2018” have been mailed out to all those who have participated in the parade previously (within the past several years) and other businesses and organizations.

If you do not receive an application in the mail and wish to be in the parade this year, please contact the Steubenville Visitor Center either by calling (740.283.4935) or email: mary@visitsteubenville.com.   A parade packet can be mailed to you or if you wish sent to you electronically.  Applications should be filed no later than November 2, 2018.

For those of you who have received their parade packets, please pay attention to the filing deadline and get the required information back in a timely fashion.  You doing so is a ‘tremendous’ help in organizing the parade in a manner that is beneficial to all.

The parade takes place on December 8th this year at noon.  The route is from North Street to South Street on Fourth.   WTOV9/FOX9 will again be broadcasting the parade live.

As always, our hope is for our parade to grow ‘larger and better’ each year.  The theme again this year is “Nutcracker Magic” and entries may reflect Nutcracker Magic or Sights & Sounds of Christmas.   All entries are eligible for awards, however, only entries reflecting Nutcracker Magic are eligible for the Grand Prize which is a complimentary sponsorship of a 2019 Nutcracker.

You are invited to join in the fun and excitement this year and also support the Steubenville community in providing a great event for young and old alike!  If you can’t be in the parade, be sure to save the date and attend for a ‘magical’ experience!
