Christmas Parade

Saturday, December 2nd, 10am

The Iola Lioness Club, with help from the Iola Village Library, the Iola Lions Club, the Iola-Scandinavia Chamber of Commerce, and the Iola Historical Society, is organizing a Christmas Parade once again this year. With the help of you and so many others our 20th annual Christmas Parade will be a huge success. The Iola Lioness Club is asking for your help to make this year’s parade another memorable event.

The organizers ask that you decorate with the Christmas spirit and that the only Santa Claus be the one at the end of the parade.

The parade route will be the same as it has been the previous years, and will again end at the Iola Historical Society. Please meet up at the High School at 9:30 A.M. on December 2, 2017 to get your place in the parade.

The festivities will continue at the Iola Historical Society machine shed building with entertainment and a visit from Santa Claus.  Refreshments (cookies, juice, and hot chocolate) will be available.

Please join us!!  Please respond by November 24, 2017 if you can be counted on to participate in the 2017 Christmas Parade.  Call 715-445-5450 or email
