Hometown Holiday parade entry deadline approaching

Popular downtown event to be held Dec. 5, followed by lighting of holiday tree

The deadline for entries in the Hometown Holiday Parade is approaching. Open to individuals, groups and organizations, the parade will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Dec. 5 along Main Street. Deadline to enter is Nov. 25.

Approximately 2,500 participants line up each December dressed as reindeer, snowmen, angels, holiday packages, and more to play a role in Pleasanton's biggest event of the season. Following the parade will be a lighting of the holiday tree in front of the Museum on Main.

There is no fee to register an entry in the parade and all entries must be of a theme that is consistent with the winter holidays. Groups can participate on a float, in individual autos, as walking groups, or with animal entries. All float entries must be safe for passengers and spectators and are limited to a height that does not exceed 14 feet.
