Hello everyone! If you have not yet selected a location to volunteer on Saturday, we are requesting that you steer towards the parade staging area at 1650 West Jackson in Ozark, as that is our area of greatest need. Your contact there will be Anna Evans, Executive Director of the Ozark Chamber, who will assign you to a task. Thank you for participating in our event and helping to make this the best Christmas Parade so far!

PARKING, SAFTEY, & INCLEMENT WEATHER

Thank you for serving as a volunteer or performer at our 54th Annual Ozark Christmas Parade presented by Ozark Chevrolet on Saturday, November 17th, from 5:30pm - 8:00pm.
Parking:
Parking for Downtown Square: Limited street parking will be available in the downtown area within walking distance of the Square. Arrive early for closer parking! Carpooling is encouraged for groups. Establishing a designated meeting area (off the Square!) for your carpool to meet after the parade is strongly recommended.
Parking for Staging Area: Limited parking for Ozark Chamber staging volunteers will be available at the staging area behind SLS (formerly Fasco) at 1650 West Jackson. All other attendee vehicles must be parked at Adams Funeral Home. Carpooling is encouraged for groups. Establishing a designated meeting area outside of the parade route for your carpool to meet after the parade is strongly recommended.
Safety:
Come prepared: Late autumn in the Ozarks can mean sun, wind, rain, snow, ice or mixture of any and all. Hats, sunglasses, heavy coats, gloves, umbrellas, and galoshes/winter boots may all be needed. Also, there are no public water fountains on site, so plan to bring or purchase drinks for your representatives.
Inclement Weather: The Christmas Parade is an all-weather event, with the exception of extremely dangerous weather (tornadoes, flooding, etc). In the unlikely circumstance that we have to cancel, the Ozark Chamber staff will make every attempt contact you before your scheduled arrival time. We will also post updates on our Facebook Page.
Thank you for your involvement in this event, and if you have any questions, email us at Camille@ozarkchamber.com.

See you Saturday!
