Parade Chair Ernie Gilpin says there is something for everyone.  "We have something again this year, that was so popular last year; it was super, it was the “Polar Express.” It was done by the Bend Transportation Department of the school district. And they make a bus that looks like a locomotive. It's absolutely perfect. It's pretty cool. The Tower Theatre too will put in "It's A Wonderful [Life]" and another production of "Annie" and they're going to have their characters on board. And we're going to have “Lamb Chop” for those old enough to remember who lamb chop is."

 

Gilpin says they begin the parade around 11:45 near the Veteran's Memorial Bridge, then travel down Wall Street and around Drake Park,  so there are plenty of good viewing places.

 

He says if they get some snow flurries, as forecasted,  it will bring to life the theme of the parade "A Picture Perfect Christmas."
