SENATH, Mo. -- If the Christmas spirit has already hit you this season, this weekend will be a good time to take advantage of all the festivities being offered. Besides, the annual Adelphian Christmas Bazaar, the City of Senath will be hosting its eighth annual Christmas parade this coming Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012.

The event which is sponsored by the Senath Women's Club is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. with the line-up beginning at the Senath-Hornersville High School. World War II veteran and lifelong Senath resident A.B. Karnes served as the parade's Grand Marshal last year. Serving this year will be Raenell Ivy, city employee with the street department who will be retiring at the end of this month.

The parade, as in the past, will begin at the high school and proceed down State Street, turning on Commercial Street ending at the Church of Christ.

Last year, entries in the parade numbered 45 entries of which eight were floats. Parade officials are hoping to exceed that number this year.

According to Patsy Davis, club member, this year's entries include fire trucks and police cars from the surrounding communities, antique vehicles, floats, churches, various homecoming queens as well as the arrival of Santa Claus.

Cash prizes will be awarded for floats entered in the parade as follows:

First place- $300;

Second place- $200;

Third place- $100.

For more information regarding the parade contact Davis at (573) 344-2280 or (573) 738-3435.
