Can you believe that we are getting close to the end of the year? Alexandria has had so much activity this year. We have been a "land of many festivals and parades". We have been the home to: Alexandria Community Band Fest, The Madison County 4-H Fair, The Alexandria Grand Prix, Small Town USA Festival, and Gaither's Fall Festival. We have seen 3 parade that marched down Harrison Street, with one more before the end of the year.
Friday December 5th will be the Annual Alexandria Christmas Parade. This is an evening parade that starts at 6pm. Nothing brings the magic of Christmas than an evening parade with a crisp air as snowflakes fall on top of decorative floats with twinkling lights. This has been a local tradition for over 2 decades. The Alexandria Monroe Chamber of Commerce organizes this parade. Mainsource Bank is the sponsor of parade again this year. Trophies are awarded in 5 categories including the "Judges Choice Award". A FREE parade entry application can be obtained at the Chamber office or by clicking on "Alexandria Christmas Parade Entry" in the navigation section of this website. For more info on the parade please contact the Chamber.
The theme for the 2014 Alexandria Christmas Parade will be "Grinch". This year's Parade Marshal is Leroy "Pete" Sayre. He is a long time resident of Alexandria. Pete is a former Alexandria Police Chief, former business owner, and former Alexandria School Corp bus driver. Pete is still very involved in many organizations like the Alexandria Service Club and the Alexandria Monroe Twp Historical Society Museum.
