DeLand is gearing up for Christmas, with the annual Jaycees Christmas Parade and the St. Johns River Boat Parade. Here's the skinny on both:
DeLand Christmas Parade
The annual DeLand Jaycees Christmas Parade will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7. This year’s theme is “Christmas … Florida style.”
Through Nov. 30, Jaycee Abie Levesque will accept nominations for parade marshal.
Nominees should be people who go above and beyond the call of duty, Levesque said.
Email your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org, or send regular mail to 1140 15th St., Orange City, FL 32763. Visit the website at http://delandchristmasparade.org.
St. Johns River Boat Parade
St. Johns River Christmas Boat Parade President Roger Woywood said volunteers are trying to bring back the floating festival of lighted boats.
More volunteers, financial help and boat owners interested in being part of the parade will be needed. To join the effort or find out more, call Woywood at 386-801-5685.
