THE PARADE ROUTE:

This year the parade will begin on S. Clinton Street from Don Miller Drive (behind the old Defiance Middle School) and continue north on Clinton Street through the downtown in a single file line to First Street. The parade will stop briefly to deliver Santa Claus to Santa’s House at the northwest corner of Clinton Street and First Street. The parade will then turn right/east onto First Street and continue to Jefferson Street. The parade will then turn right/south onto Jefferson Street and continue south all the way to Carter Road. The parade will then turn left/east onto Carter Road and continue to the First Church of God at 561 Carter Road.

All of the toys collected by first responders will then be delivered to the church to iHeart Media representatives and volunteers from the Marine Corps League.

The community is asked to show their support for our First Responders and join them in the downtown area for the Parade which will showcase Law Enforcement vehicles, Fire trucks, Ambulances, and EMS vehicles. For those not able to make it to the downtown area, feel free to watch the Parade from any other part of the parade route on Jefferson Street to Carter Road.
