The theme is: Christmas Carols on Parade. This Saturday is the 26th Annual Christmas Parade through downtown Bend. Co-Chair Ernie Gilpin says with 88 entries, this is a huge parade: "It's the biggest parade in Oregon. I always say that we have more entrants than the parade up in Portland or any parade that I’ve seen advertised. So we're the largest parade in Oregon." Gilpin says because of the theme, there will be plenty of music that the crowds can join in singing too. And, he's got a few surprises up his sleeve to thrill the crowd. Of course, the crowning moment will be a visit from Santa.  The Parade begins at noon at Harmon and Newport. Street closures will begin around 11 am.
