Registration is now open for the annual Daytona Beach Shores Christmas Parade – to be held at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3.

Clubs, businesses and organizations are invited to participate with a float, vehicle, walkers or a combination of all three. The entry fee for businesses is a $100 donation to benefit Operation Changing Lives. There is no fee for nonprofit organizations to participate.

The deadline to register a unit in the parade is Nov. 25. Download the Parade Application and Parade Rules and Guidelines from the city website – or pick up a copy at the Shores Community Center.

This year’s theme is “A Coastal Holiday,” and all parade entries must be decorated to this year’s theme and be appropriate, tasteful and decorated in a festive manner to promote holiday spirit. Plaques will be awarded based on originality and creativity in projecting the parade theme.

Staging for the parade will be at 2 p.m. Dec. 3, with the parade beginning at 3:30 p.m. The parade will travel north on South Atlantic Avenue (A1A) for nearly 2 miles, turning left (west) onto Bellemead Drive and ending at the Shores Community Center. The Tree Lighting event will follow the parade, beginning at 5 p.m.

Entry fee proceeds will go to Operation Changing Lives, an organization that provides reconstructive surgeries to disadvantaged patients with severe facial deformities.
