The annual Mountain Grove Christmas parade will be held on Saturday, Dec. 3, at 1 p.m. with a theme of “A Gift from the Heart.”

The Grand Marshals of the parade will be Dwain and Sue Murphy.

The McCune Sisters will kick off the day with caroling at the square beginning at 11:45 a.m. Miss Merry Christmas will be crowned at noon in the gazebo.

Santa Claus will arrive at the Mountain Grove square at 12:15 p.m.  Parents can bring their children to meet Santa and take a picture with him prior to the parade. He will also be passing out candy canes to the children. Parents are reminded to bring their own camera.

Many of the local merchants will be open both before and after the parade for customers’ Christmas shopping convenience.

There will be three prizes awarded this year for entries in the parade, first place $150; second place, $125; and third place, $100.

If persons are looking for the judging box as your entry will be performing, the judges will be in front of First Home Bank.
