Whoville Christmas Festivities Feature Battle of the School Bands

The first prize winner takes home $700.

We know you appreciate the professionalism, the precision and the musical aptitude of the youngsters who make up our local school marching bands.

In this December's Whoville Christmas Parade in Enumclaw, watch them bring their best in a Battle of the Bands competition where the top winner takes home a $700 prize!

The parade takes place Saturday, Dec. 1 beginning at 6 p.m. downtown. Each year, Cole Street comes alive with holiday floats, cars and yuletide cheer for the annual Christmas celebration. This year aims to be no different, with thousands of people expected to line the street to experience this magical event.

Bands are beginning to sign up already, said Enumclaw Chamber Executive Director Kelvin Schipper, and the prize money is made possible by Enumclaw Self Storage, he said. Second place takes $200 home and third place walks away with $100.

In fact, if your group or organization is aiming to march in the parade, you can start to register now. Visit the Chamber website, the city of Enumclaw website or download the PDF with this story to complete your parade application today.

Entries received by the deadline of Friday, Nov. 23 at 5 p.m. are subject to a $25 fee. Late entries will be charged a $50 fee and be placed at the end of the parade. (Non-profits and school bands entry fee is $15 before deadline, $30 after deadline)

See you at the parade!

Whoville? Again? I do miss the days where we had a different theme each year.

Thank you MPB for your comment, this year when requests for help were sent out no one responded so to keep the process as easy as possible the theme carried over. We would love to have you on the committee to help with the process of changing the theme next year, please email your contact information to Info@EnumclawChamber.com thank you.
