Ocala Christmas Parade

Should the Ocala Christmas parade be held earlier in the day, and should people be allowed to place chairs along the Boulevard days in advance?

Patriotism evident at parade

By Jim Clark

Some of the loudest cheers of the day at the Christmas parade on Silver Springs Boulevard last Saturday came when the military units went by.
That included the JROTC groups from West Port and Forest High schools, who marched in precision and received rousing cheers as they went by.
Patriotism is still very much in vogue in Marion County.
A lot of people put a lot of effort into this parade so that the thousands of people who lined the route could enjoy the marchers, bands and brightly-lit floats.
