11/28/2013 Westcliffe to get all festive for Dec. 7 Christmas Parade

This year’s Christmas parade is Saturday, December 7. It is still not too late for businesses, families, and individuals to enter the parade for free and be up to win best float entry. The theme this year is "Christmas."

First place winners receive $200, second place $50, and third place $25.

People may enter either on townofwestcliffe.com or by going to Town Hall on Main Street in Westcliffe.

Floats are asked to lineup at 4 p.m. in the Custer County School’s west parking lot. The parade begins at 4:30 p.m.

The parade will march west from the school down Main Street and stop at Jess Price Memorial Park for Mayor Christy Veltrie’s lighting of the park, and then proceed down Main Street ending on Adam’s Boulevard.

Mayor Veltrie will give the town, participants, and visitors a celebratory speech. The Custer County School Choir will perform carols and other holiday songs, and be accompanied by a piano.

"The parade judges are Mayor Veltrie, Trustee Art Nordyke, and Mayor Pro-Tem Audrey Gluschke," said Westcliffe town clerk Kathy Reis. "Parade winners will be announced the following week in the paper, and they will be contacted."

Before the parade begins, parents can bring their children to visit Santa Claus at the Bowling Alley at 3 p.m..

Downtown businesses are expected to offer extended hours and holiday specials.
