Christmas Parade in reverse

This year’s Christmas offering in Oak Ridge will be a “reverse” parade, with floats remaining stationery and spectators driving the parade route. The event will be held Saturday, Dec. 12, 6-8 p.m. The night of the parade, floats will line the northbound lanes of Lafayette Drive (heading toward Oak Ridge Turnpike) and spectators will drive down the southbound lanes (heading toward Illinois Avenue) to enjoy the festivities from the safety and comfort of their own cars. The decision to move to a “reverse” parade was made in consultation with Chamber staff and leaders from the City of Oak Ridge because of COVID-19 concerns. Each entry will have an assigned space along Lafayette Drive for its float/display. At 6 p.m. Dec. 12, vehicles will be led by members of the Oak Ridge Police Department down the opposite side of Lafayette Drive to view all of the beautiful and creative entries they have come to expect from our parade. The Chamber will be accepting entries online through Friday, Dec. 4. Register by visiting the Chamber’s website
