Cairo Christmas Parade is tomorrow night at seven

The 2011 edition of the Cairo Christmas Parade steps off tomorrow night at 7 p.m.
Nearly 80 entries are included, according to veteran parade chairman Michael Best.
Best reminds all residents that the city will prohibit parking on Broad Street during the parade.
“Make your plans to bring the whole family and your neighbors out to enjoy this year’s parade. It may not be the largest ever, but it will likely be one of the best!” Chairman Best said.
Parade organizers also encourage everyone to place their trash in conveniently located trash receptacles placed by the city of Cairo along the parade route. This will greatly help in the clean up following the parade.
In years past, the parade route has been littered with discarded cups, cans and other trash and required many hours of city employee time to clean up the downtown business district.
“Please come, enjoy the parade, but please don’t litter!” Best said.
