CANNELTON - The Cannelton Christmas Parade returns Nov. 23 to kick off the holiday season.

Sponsored by Harry G. Myers American Legion Post 142, the Post's auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion Detachment 142, this year's grand marshals are members of Rolling Thunder Indiana Chapter 7.

Rolling Thunder is a non-profit organization whose major function is to publicize POW-MIA issues. Their members are also committed to helping American veterans from all wars.

Parade lineup begins at 6 p.m. at Old Indiana 237, across from Randy Aubrey Dodge. At 7 p.m., participants will proceed along Indiana 66 (Seventh Street) to the traffic light at Indiana 66 and Washington Street, then turn right and go down Washington to First Street, where they will disband.

Tell City entries are to use either Mozart or Tell streets to get to Old Indiana 237 so they can line up without having to turn around on Old Indiana 237.

All organizations and individuals are welcome to enter the parade. However, dirt bikes or four-wheelers are not allowed with the exception of four-wheelers pulling entries.

Entries should display the name of the individual, business or organization sponsoring the float so the parade judges can see the name.

There will be first- , second- and third-place trophies awarded for civic and commercial entries.

Anyone wanting to enter should call Ruth Lawalin at 547-3671 or Mary Stephens after 5 p.m. at 547-8003.

Entries will be accepted until parade lineup.
