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.
