Registration open for Princeton Christmas Parade

Posted: Updated:

The Princeton-Mercer County Chamber of Commerce announces this year's Princeton Christmas Parade is scheduled for Monday, November 27 at 6:00 p.m.

Registration forms with lineup information and regulations are now available at the Chamber office or online from the chamber website at

There is no entry fee to enter the parade, but floats wishing to be judged for awards must conform to this year's parade theme which is "Christmas Joy" and should be registered before November 15.

The full set of regulations and lineup instructions is available with the entry form.

Monetary prizes for winning floats are $100 for first place and $50 for second place in the categories of Civic and Individual.

Another change this year is that individual four-wheelers and dirt bikes will not be allowed in this year's parade. ATVs and motorcycles riding as part of a responsible organization or business will be permitted.

Because the Princeton Christmas Parade is so large, containing nearly 100 units, lineup requires the use of Thorn, East Mercer and South 2nd Streets.

The parade begins at the 5th Street stoplight on Mercer Street and ends at the Mercer County Courthouse.
