Allen's Rotary clubs are once again putting on the Annual Christmas Parade. The parade, which is sponsored by the Allen Sunrise and Allen Noon Rotary Clubs, will be held on Sunday December 8, starting at 2 p.m. The theme for this year’s parade is “Tidings of Comfort and Joy.”
 
Local youth groups, schools, churches, businesses and community organizations are welcome to march or enter a float in this year’s parade. Proceeds from the parade fund charitable Rotary projects in the Allen community.
The parade route will begin at North Cedar Drive and St. Mary’s Drive and proceed south to the Main Street. The parade will head west on Main to Allen Drive and then north on Allen Drive to the traffic circle at St. Mary’s Drive. A grand prize will be awarded along with “best of” awards in eleven different categories.
