Participants Wanted for Claremore Christmas Parade

Lights! Camera! Action! It’s “Christmas at the Movies!”

The Claremore Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the return of a time-honored Claremore event, the traditional Christmas parade! After hosting a drive-thru event for the previous two years, things will return to normal for the 2022 holiday season. The parade will take place on Saturday, December 3rd, at 6:00 p.m.

The theme for this year’s parade is “Christmas at the Movies.” Whether your group chooses to represent a holiday classic, or add a Christmas twist to any movie, this theme allows for plenty of fun and creativity. Christmas lights are required on all entries. The Chamber will be giving away cash prizes for the following categories: Best Use of Decorated Lights, Best Use of Parade Theme, and Christmas Spirit Award.

“While the drive-thru method allowed us to continue this beloved holiday event during the pandemic, we are ready and excited to bring back the traditional parade,” said Ashley May, Director of Communications for the Chamber. “We hope to gain more entries this year and make the 2022 parade the biggest and best we’ve ever had.”

This year, Share the Spirit, which provides holiday meals for Rogers County families in need, will play an important role in the parade. They will be pushing shopping carts along the route, collecting canned goods from attendees. Please bring some canned items to help make their important mission a success!

The parade route will begin near Will Rogers Blvd. and Florence Ave., with lineup starting outside First Baptist Church Claremore. The parade will travel west on Will Rogers Blvd. and end at the Claremore Indian Hospital. Churches, business, civic organizations, car clubs, and more are invited to participate.

Applications are available now at on the events calendar or at the Chamber office, 419 W. Will Rogers Blvd., in historic downtown Claremore.

This event is made possible by the generosity of sponsorships offered by Claremore businesses. The 2022 Claremore Christmas Parade sponsors include Presenting Sponsor: Rescue Heat & Air, Star Sponsors: Solid Rock Realtors and Rock Famous Construction, and Ribbon Sponsor: Chick-fil-A Claremore.
