Derry holiday parade needs a theme

DERRY — Planning for the annual Derry holiday parade is underway, but there’s one big thing missing — a theme.

The parade, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 24, always has a theme, traditionally chosen by local schoolchildren. Somehow, perhaps because of a transition in the superintendent’s office, the contest slipped through the cracks this year.

That’s good news for anyone out there with a great idea. This announcement officially launches the parade theme contest.

Start thinking; the deadline for entries is Oct. 5.

Recent themes include “Holiday TV Classics Come to Life” last year and “Star-Spangled Holiday” in 2009. The theme must be family friendly, no scary entries.

The winner will receive a generous basket filled with gift cards and items donated by Chamber members.

There’s no age limit and group entries are welcome, but there’s only one prize.

Enter by emailing info@gdlchamber.org. Entries also can be faxed to 432-7938 or mailed to the Greater Derry/Londonderry Chamber of Commerce, 29 W. Broadway, Derry, 03038.
