LARGO – Organizers for An Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade is accepting entries for the second annual event scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 1, 2 to 4 p.m., through the historic streets of the Old Northwest neighborhood in Largo.
Last year, more than 36 businesses and organizations paraded past a crowd of about 2,000.
The parade helped the local nonprofit, Bikers Raising Awareness, benefiting area breast cancer patients and their families.
This year, the event will include a drop box for new, unwrapped toys that will be given to Kiwanis Club of Largo to distribute to area underprivileged children.
Also, the parade route will be slightly longer this year. It will start and end at the School Board parking lot.
Participation is $50 per organization and includes an insert, up to postcard size, in the bags passed out during the parade. There is no limit or restriction to the size of the float.
