Downtown Fresno Christmas Parade!

It's that time of year again! Jingle bells ringing and shoppers bustling about to find the treasures that will go beneath the carefully decorated tree.  In Fresno, Mid Valley Disposal is busy preparing for their big event... They'll be presenting the 82nd annual Christmas parade! The 2011 Parade Theme is "Celebrate Fresno & Who We Are!" ... Celebrating our diversity and heritage, our cultural arts, and our agricultural products, all with Christmas spirit!  The parade will take place on December 10th and will start at 11:00 a.m.  You’ll want to get there a little bit early for a good spot. 

The folks from Toys for Tots will be present, so be sure to bring an unwrapped toy or two for a needy child in our community. Every child dreams of gifts at Christmas, and if we all work together, imagine how many dreams we can make come true this year! The community food bank will also be at the parade taking your donations. Bring your non perishable food items and help to feed those in need!  After all, 'tis the season for giving!

You’ll be able to Park for free on parade day in any downtown city parking lot or at any metered spot. (We’re not sure if there will be room for your RV though). This year, the parade will be broadcast live by KSEE24. Sponsors and volunteers are still needed, so why not show your holiday spirit by donating your time?  For an application, sponsorship, or if you have any questions, you can visit downtown Fresno's website.  We sure hope to see you there, and if you get some great photos, don’t forget to share them with us! You can post them on our Facebook wall or submit your story on our website.

Happy Holidays!
