Princeton Christmas parade date set


PRINCETON, WV – Even though the 2015 Princeton Christmas Parade is still two months away, the Princeton-Mercer County Chamber of Commerce is already receiving inquiries from interested participants. This year’s parade is scheduled for Monday, November 30.

Registration forms and regulations are now available at the Chamber office or online from the chamber website at

There is no entry fee to enter the parade, but floats wishing to be judged for awards must conform to this year’s parade theme which is “Christmas Miracles” and should be registered before November 18. Other units are asked to at least give their unit a Christmassy appearance and also be registered by November 24. The full set of regulations and lineup instructions is available with the entry form.

Every year the chamber encourages businesses, community organizations and individuals to enter a float in the parade. In an effort to take the parade “to the next level” the chamber encourages potential float entrants to do an internet search for “float building 101,” where one can find several websites with many tips and ideas pertaining to float building.

Because the Princeton Christmas Parade is so large, containing nearly 100 units, lineup requires the use of Thorn, East Mercer and South 2nd Streets. The parade begins at the 5th Street stoplight on Mercer Street and ends at the Mercer County Courthouse.
