DESERT HOT SPRINGS, CA – The 2012 Desert Hot Springs Holiday Parade entry forms and packet are now available and this year’s parade committee has made it really easy for everyone to participate.

“We are looking forward to a really nice event,” said Joe McKee, this year’s parade chairman. “The committee has been working hard and all that’s left is for people to show up for a really good time.”

McKee said the committee has already signed up marching bands, car clubs, community groups and residents planning to enter floats.

“If you ever wanted to be in a parade, it could not be easier,” said McKee. “Sign up sheets are at the Visitor Center. There is a small fee for businesses that want to enter but for just about everyone else there is no charge to enter.”

This year’s parade marks the 25th anniversary of the Desert Hot Springs Parade and the return of the parade to the city after a four year break. The parade route follows Desert Hot Springs holiday tradition with a march down Palm Drive.

Making this years parade possible are several corporate and other sponsors, including Desert Valley Disposal, Wintec, Mission Springs Water District and Miracle Springs Resort & Spa.

The parade will start at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 15 and will travel Palm Drive from Desert View Avenue to Two Bunch Palms Trail and ending in the Kmart center.

‘It has been a lot of work to make this parade possible and with so many people volunteering to help it is hard to mention them all,” said McKee. “I really look forward to see the parade floats I hear are in the works.”

If you would like to be in the parade, there is still plenty of time to decorate you golf cart or pick up, turn your garden trailer into a float or polish up your classic car. The last day to register is December 12 so there is still plenty of time.

But, the 2012 Holiday Parade will be limited to the first 100 entries and McKee recommends registering early to insure a place in the parade. The deadline to register for the Christmas Parade is Monday, November 26.
