The Friends of the Christmas Parade, Inc., are proud to announce that the parade will go on. After a disappointing cancellation for safety in 2020, we are thrilled to announce that we will hold the 65th Ocala/Marion County Christmas Parade on December 11, 2021.
Look for applications on this website starting August 1, 2021.
We will be holding a Mandatory Packet Pickup Meeting in late November. All participants MUST send a representative to this meeting to pick up your vehicle passes and information packets for line-up. Look for updates on the specific date in August.
Applications are due by October 31, 2021. Acceptance notifications will go out November 5, with packet pickup meetings between November 15 to 19.
Friends of the Christmas Parade, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization. Our committee will make every effort to quickly respond to your questions, but ask for your patience in responding to your emails regarding applications, mandatory packet pickup, and bleacher seating.
