WinterFest Parade To Be A Highlight of Small Business Saturday

The annual WinterFest Parade has become a beloved activity for residents, children and families that are visiting the area during Thanksgiving weekend.

Hundreds of people gather in downtown Ord as businesses, organizations and groups light up the downtown square with floats, vehicles, farm equipment and furry friends adorned with Christmas lights and decorations.

Any business or organization is welcome to participate in the WinterFest Parade. There is no entry fee and prizes of $25 in Ord Area ChamberBucks are awarded for the following categories: Most Lights, Most Creative and Most Holiday Related.

Participating in the WinterFest Parade also offers excellent exposure for your business or organization. The Ord Area Chamber of Commerce promotes parade participants before, during and after the event online and through other Chamber communication channels. As your float or vehicle passes by, the announcer from KNLV Radio will read the script you prepare on your registration form which will not only be announced to the hundreds of people in downtown Ord but also broadcast live on the radio.

Ideally, your WinterFest Parade registration form would be delivered to the Ord Area Chamber office or emailed to kristinafoth@ordnebraska.com in advance; however, you can also bring the completed registration form to parade lineup so it can be picked up prior to the start of the parade.

Contact the Ord Area Chamber office at (308) 728-7875 with any questions about the WinterFest Parade or Small Business Saturday activities.
