PIQUA — Downtown Piqua’s Christmas parade has been set for Saturday, Dec. 3, at 2 p.m.
Area businesses, civic organizations, non-profits, churches and other interested groups are invited to be a part of this annual Piqua Christmas tradition.
A traveling trophy will be awarded to the most festively decorated float and the winning entry will get to keep the trophy for the year. They will also be permanently recognized on the trophy with a plaque.
The theme for the parade is “A Very Snoopy Christmas” as 2022 marks the 100th birthday of Charles Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip.
