Alton, Mo. –If there’s one thing Alton, Missouri, does without fail; it’s having a Christmas parade lighten up the town streets. This year won’t be different in that aspect. On Saturday, December first of 2018, the annual Alton Christmas pageant and parade will be held.
It’s been a long, hot summer and we’re all thankful fall is here. With fall comes the joyous spirit of the holidays, mainly Christmas. Tree decorating, present wrapping, donning Christmas lights on everything, and sipping hot chocolate are all some of our favorite Christmas traditions. But what makes Christmas even better? A parade. A parade that is so close to home that you can watch your kids grab candy in the morning and return home in time for lunch.
Saturday, December 1st, the annual Alton Christmas pageant and parade will be held. The parade lineup will begin at 10 AM in the high school parking lot. Judging will be at 10:30 AM and yes, there will be a first, second, and third place prizes according to the categories.
