Greenville's Christmas parade is Saturday

GREENVILLE — Greenville’s annual Christmas parade is set for 5 p.m. Saturday, starting at Riverside Park and ending at Central Park, where children can visit Santa Claus.

Sponsored by the Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce, the parade will have about 25 area groups and organizations, said Theresa Sullivan, an administrative assistant with the chamber.

Cash prizes provided by Greenville Savings Bank will be awarded to the best floats, with first place receiving $200; second place, $100; and third place, $50.

Downtown Greenville is ready for the holidays, Ms. Sullivan said. Chamber board members have decorated Main Street with garland, red bows and Christmas lights.

Parade participants must start lining up at Riverside Park at 4 p.m. The parade will follow Shenango, Water and Main streets and end at Central Park, Ms. Sullivan said.

Members of Bethel Life Worship Center, Greenville, will sing Christmas carols and Santa Claus will be inside his home set up in Central Park.

Salvation Army workers will provide hot chocolate and collect non-perishable food items during the parade and at the park for donation to charity. The streets on the parade route will be closed to traffic during the event.

For more information, call the Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce at 724-588-7150.
