Now, before you get all put out and scream, "We haven't even celebrated Thanksgiving yet!" please appreciate that some things take planning and preparation.

Like your Christmas parade float for an example.

You're being invited to take part in the 33rd annual Christmas parade in the city of Ellsworth.

This year's parade theme is rockin' around the Christmas tree, and organizer Thelma Beal hopes to hear that song, and other Christmas favorites, during the parade which is held Saturday, December 7th this year

Parade lineup is at 10 AM by Angelo’s pizza and will step off at 11am.

The parade route travels down Main Street, turning at Camden National Bank, and disbanding at the school.

Motorists should be advised that there could be some traffic detours or delays.

For more information, or to sign up a unit for the parade, call Thelma Beal at 667-4664.
