Floats, cars and animals adorned in lights will make their way through Old Town Clovis on Saturday, Dec. 5, in the annual Children’s Electric Christmas Parade.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Clovis Rodeo Grounds, parade entries will head south on Clovis Avenue to 8th Street, then delight crowds along Pollasky Avenue all the way to 3rd Street. From there the parade heads back along Clovis Avenue to the rodeo grounds.
The parade has been a Clovis tradition for decades, said Carol Dogey of the Kiwanis Club of Old Town Clovis, which hosts the event. The club took over for the Clovis Chamber of Commerce more than 10 years ago, Dogey said.
The parade will be made up of more than 80 unique entries including horses, a pack of 10 llamas, antique cars, Girl Scout troops, Disney princesses, intermediate and high school bands and more, Dogey said.
Clovis Transit buses will shuttle parade-goers from Sierra Vista Mall, near Sierra Vista Cinemas 16, to Centennial Plaza at Bullard and Pollasky avenues beginning at 5:30 p.m. The parade begins at 6:30 p.m.
Key Club members from Clovis Unified high schools will sell hot cocoa and cookies at the shuttle drop-off point.
While the Kiwanis club hopes for great weather, “the parade will go, rain or shine,” Dogey said.
