SEMINOLE – More than 50 units are expected to participate Sunday, Dec. 9 when the city of Seminole and the Seminole Chamber of Commerce present the seventh annual Bright Before Your Eyes Holiday Parade.

The annual event rolls down 113th Street from the Seminole Mall to the Seminole Recreation Center, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

“We’re very fortunate to bring this again this year, due to the economy,” said Jacob Valentin, the chamber’s parade director. “But everybody has stepped up very well and the city has done a great job to organize it. I can’t say enough about how much help they’ve been.”

Staging for the parade will be on Johnson Boulevard, from Seminole Boulevard west to Liberty Lane. The parade will begin in front of the mall by the south entrance, move west toward 113th Street and north on 113th Street toward the Recreation Center.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office will close 113th Street at 6:15 p.m. until the end of the parade, about 7:30 p.m.

The parade will again include the Seminole High School marching band, the Seminole Fire Rescue honor guard, a number of community organization floats, area schools and a number of churches.

Santa Claus will make his entrance at the end of the parade.

As in past years, Sheriff’s deputies will not allow parade patrons to sit in the median. Also, parade participants will not be allowed to throw candy but parade walkers will be handing out goodies along the east side of the route.

This year’s title sponsor is Realty Executives Adamo and Associates.

Other sponsors include Bright House Networks, Home Depot, Sweetbay, MedExpress Urgent Care, Alexander Chiropractic and Centratel.
