33rd Annual Amelia Christmas Parade scheduled for Dec. 8

Doug Green

The 33rd Annual Amelia Christmas Parade is scheduled for Sunday December 8th at 2pm.

The route will proceed from the vacant Kroger parking lot at S.R. 125 & S.R. 132 in Amelia, to the new Kroger Marketplace at 262 West Main Street Amelia, Ohio 45102.

That is a change from years past, traveling in the opposite direction. The change allows us to stage the participants in one location and to have the opportunity to distribute the awards following the parade, instead of at another date.

We would like to thank Kroger for their support. We believe this will be a special event this year!

The theme for this year’s parade is ‘An Old Fashioned Christmas’. We are honored to have State Representative Doug Green as our 2013 Grand Marshall.

Mr. Green is currently serving his first term at the Ohio House of Representatives. He represents the 66th District, which includes all of Brown County, as well as southeastern Clermont County.

He has previously served as the Auditor of Brown County. Mr. Green has been a supporter of the Annual Christmas parade through the years.

Along with Representative Green, we are extremely honored to have Clermont County resident Joe Whitt participate in our Parade.

Mr. Whitt was stationed on the USS San Francisco in Pearl Harbor during the Japanese attack December 7, 1941.

It is with great respect that we welcome his participation only a day after the 72nd anniversary of that fateful day.

We are also happy to have Mr. Redlegs, official Cincinnati Reds mascot participate in our parade this year.

Please plan to attend and support this wonderful family and community tradition!
