Abbie Bayerle, 9, of Delmont waits to step off at the Greensburg Holiday Parade on Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018, with two of the llamas she helps raise with fellow members of the Mountain View 4-H Club.

It’s time to prepare for the most wonderful time of the year.

Greensburg is looking for bands and organizations to participate in the city’s 28th annual Holiday Parade, which will take place Nov. 23. Recreation program Manager Lydia Kinkaid said the city hopes to see plenty of participants sign up — whether they’ve been marching down Main Street for years or want to take part for the first time.

Organizations can march or have a float.

“We just ask that it’s holiday theme, and that they refrain from having a Santa with their group or on their float, because we like to save that until the very end,” Kinkaid said.

Santa Claus usually makes his appearance as the parade’s finale.

The parade often draws about 8,000 spectators.

Interested participants can find the registration form on the Parks and Recreation page at

Participants must register by Nov. 5.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
