The now world-famous Orenco Christmas Parade starts its run tonight around 7 PM, and this event is fun for all. To enjoy seeing Orenco locals in lawn tractors, boats, tractors, and all sorts of floats float through the Orenco area, all you have to do is show up! Many locals decorate various floats each year and take them to the parade route after dark. You can enjoy it all by parking along the parade route and watching them go by! It is all in good fun, and many people now ride bikes with the floats, and some even jog along and catch the thousands of parade watchers who are beaming with joy. Here is the 411 from Ron and Pam Bulmann of Old Orenco, who founded the parade many, many years ago.
PARADE WILL NOT BE CANCELED FOR RAIN!
The only time weather has forced us to cancel was ice that was not safe for our vehicles to navigate!
Join the fun! Decorate your ATV, riding mower or even your car or truck! Contact us for more information.
