We encourage the use of music of all types, including bands. Awards are given in the following categories:

  • Santa's Choice - Best Use of Theme
  • Mayor's Choice - Best Commercial Float
  • Judge's Choice - Best Use of Lights
  • Commissioner's Choice - Best County Entry
  • Corvallis Lions Choice - Best Nonprofit/Civic Club entry
  • Downtown Corvallis Association's Choice - Best Use of Music

There will also be awards for:

  • Best Non-Float Entry
  • Best Entry with Animals

This is a night parade so lights are an important part of entries. Light 'em up bright and colorful!

To be judged, you must be in the lineup by 5:45 PM. The parade begins at 7:00 PM. For safety reasons, please have very large entries such as trucks pulling trailers and semis in position by 5:30 PM. The line-up will be along Washington, from 4th to lIth. You will receive a letter via email the week of the parade that will include a map showing your place in the line-up.

  • NO SANTA ENTRIES - one Santa is enough and we already have one.
  • NO CANDY CAN BE THROWN! Have walkers toss it out gently. A safety issue.
  • Horse entries must have their own insurance and provide proof to the Parade Committee.

The entry fee is $25 for a business and $15 for non-profits and individuals. Please make checks payable to Corvallis Lions Club. Your entry fee is used to offset parade expenses and help improve the parade. I hope you will accept our invitation to join us on Friday, November 29th, for the 35th annual, 2019 Corvallis Community Christmas Parade!
