The 2013 annual Cabot Christmas Parade, sponsored by Cabot City Beautiful, will be Dec. 8; parade theme is It’s A Dr. Seuss Christmas! Parade entries should portray an idea or image of a character or message of the Dr. Seuss stories by Theodor Seuss Geisel.

Businesses, groups and organizations are invited to take part in the parade — entries should reflect the parade theme in an acceptable, tasteful manner mindful of the responsibility that goes along with a public presentation. No entries may feature a live person wearing a Santa Claus suit.

Trophies will be awarded in five categories: School/Civic, Church, Business, Animal/Equestrian and General/Personal. A current Coggins is required for all horses; certificates must be verified before any horse may be allowed off a trailer.

Entry forms, parade rules and route maps are available at the Cabot Veterans Park Community Center, Cabot Chamber of Commerce office, and are downloadable at www.cabotparks.com.

Entry deadline is Dec. 2. Completed forms, along with $10 entry fee, should be sent to Cabot Christmas Parade, P.O. Box 1101, Cabot, AR 72023. Entries received after Dec. 2 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
