The Kerrville Parks and Recreation Department is still accepting applications for the 20th Annual Holiday Lighted Parade, scheduled for 6 p.m., on Saturday, November 20. This annual tradition officially welcomes the holiday season, along with the arrival of Santa Claus in his signature fire truck.
All entry forms and payments must be submitted to the Parks and Recreation Department before Friday, November 5th, at 5 p.m. Late registration will be accepted until noon on November 12th, and entries will NOT be accepted after the late registration deadline.

The parade is limited to the first 100 entries, and all entries must be lit for night-time viewing. The parade will officially commence at the corner of the G Street Bridge and Water Street, ending at the Kerr County Courthouse, which will serve as the finale to the festivities.
