Virtual Parade

This year’s parade will be done virtually.  Parade entries will be compiled into a video that will premiere at our December 12th Christmas in the Park event.  Participants can submit their parade entries online and can choose one of two formats:

  • 15 second videos of “Holiday Wishes” from individuals or groups (no contest involved)

  • 15 second videos of a miniature parade float (for judging/Facebook contest)

Entrants will post their video submissions on our special Facebook event page for Christmas in the Park.  Our Staff will piece them together into a video that highlights all of the entries.  There will be parade announcers as part of the video, just like our live parade. The individual or group whose miniature parade float is selected as the contest winner will be announced at the end of the virtual parade video.  They will have the honor of serving as the Grand Marshal(s) of next year’s parade! 

The virtual parade will be projected onto an outdoor movie screen at our Christmas in the Park event on Saturday, December 12, 2020.  Afterwards, we will also post it for public viewing on the City of Litchfield Park website and YouTube channel.

THE VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS IN THE PARK PARADE WILL PREMIERE ON DECEMBER 12th AT 5:30 PM. 

FLOAT SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20, AT 11:59 PM ON OUR
