The City of Harrisburg Holiday Parade will be held on Saturday, November 17 and we just received word that the City is interested in having local Scouting units join the parade as participants this year. The parade attracts over 10,000 attendees from Harrisburg and the surrounding communities. It features floats, parade balloons, musical acts, food trucks, carnival games, awards ceremony, and is broadcast on local TV stations.
If leaders are interested in their unit participating in the parade, please complete the online application: APPLY NOW. While the stated application deadline is October 5, we have been told that our units can have until October 19 to apply.
Please also note that the parade is offering a new “Best in Theme” contest this year that all organizations (except band, dance, step, and drill units that take part in separate contests) may enter within the application. The winner(s) of this contest will receive a trophy.
