Steubenville Christmas Parade Adds a New Feature.

The 2015 Steubenville Christmas Parade will be themed “Sights & Sounds of Christmas – Nutcracker Dreams” in keeping with the new Steubenville Nutcracker Village initiative.   Entrants who choose the option of participating in the Nutcracker theme will be eligible for judging in two categories, with 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes in each.   There will also be a 6′ Nutcracker awarded as the ‘Grand Prize’.

The 6′ Nutcrackers, manufactured locally by Nelson’s Fine Arts & Gifts are also available for rent/sponsorship or purchase.  Contact Nelson’s at 740.282.7101 for more information or pick up a brochure at the Visitor Center at 120 S. 3rd Street or Nelson’s Gifts, 980 Lincoln Ave.

The parade date has been changed from December 5th to December 12th because of a scheduling conflict.  It will be still held at noon, along 4th Street,  and will be broadcast live on WTOV9/FOX9.  Entries are coming in daily and hopefully we may surpass last year’s number. If you would like to have an entry in the parade, please call 740.283.4935 or email: mary@visitsteubenville.com.   Regardless of the size or the weather, it is always a good time for everyone!
