Not too late to shine in Marysville Electric Lights Parade

Marysville Parks and Recreation is accepting applications from businesses, churches, families and other groups who want to be part of the Electric Lights Parade on Dec. 1.

The parade has featured floats, decorated vehicles, Santa Claus and people just walking down State Avenue. Community groups and nearby cities usually enter floats.

“It’s just wonderful for the whole family,” said Andrea Kingsford, recreation coordinator for the city. “For a lot of families, it’s a tradition to come to the Electric Lights Parade.”

Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. Nov. 26 and can be requested by emailing Kingsford, akingsford@marysvillewa.gov, or found at Parks and Recreation’s ePlay online registration service at www.marysvillewa.gov.
