The Mountain Home-Town Christmas Festival is “fishing” you a very Merry Christmas this year.
The festival, which will open on Dec. 1 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. in downtown Mountain Home, is looking for vendors to help in filling up the Baker District square.
This year’s festival is fishing-themed and will feature Mountain Home’s annual Christmas parade, which will begin at 6 p.m.
As usual, Mountain Home’s Christmas parade floats will be judged this year on theme interpretation, craftsmanship and creativity. All floats must demonstrate a Christmas theme and should reflect community spirit.
As there is only one Santa, participating floats are asked not to bring their own Santa for the festival. Santa Clause will make his official Mountain Home visit at the end of the parade.
This year’s parade will follow Mountain Home’s usual parade route from Hwy 178 before turning onto Bucher Drive. Floats will line up on the corner of Burnett and Buttercup Street. Cars, tractors and other vehicles will stage at the corner of Burnett and Beard Street.
Fire trucks and emergency vehicles will gather at Medical Plaza. MHPS marching band members and walkers will meet in the First Security parking lot before the parade.
Horses are asked to wait in the Cardiovascular Associates parking lot on Buttercup Drive.
