A group of Mammoth citizens are busy organizing a Christmas Light Parade. “It is something to do for the kids,”said Pedro Young. “We thought about doing a parade last year and this year we wanted to get it started.” Pedro, Kevin Waddell and others have been getting the word out on Facebook on the 2013 Mammoth Christmas Light Parade Facebook page. A meeting was held on Sunday, Nov. 24 at the Mammoth Community Center. Representatives from the Mammoth Town Council, Lions Club, senior citizens, and some others were in attendance.

The Christmas Light Parade will be held on Saturday, Dec. 21 at 6 p.m. The theme for the inaugural parade is Disney characters. It was voted on by people on the Light Parade Facebook page. Floats should have a Disney theme and be illuminated. Entry forms for the parade are available at Shear Expression and Mammoth Towing. The deadline for float entries is Dec. 16. There is no entry fee. The parade is open to everyone in the Tri-Community.

The parade will begin lining up at the Old Mammoth Jail House at 5:30 p.m. At 6 p.m. the parade will begin and make its way to the Lions Club. At the Lions Club the kids will be able to visit with Santa Claus. There will be food available at the Lions Club. The seniors will be selling menudo. Other food such as cookies and hot chocolate may be available.

Another meeting is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 8 at 6 p.m. at the Mammoth Community Center. At the meeting, the details of the parade will be finalized. For more information about the parade or to offer ideas contact Pedro Young at 520-203-3943 or Kevin Waddell at 520-483-0001. Interested parties can also stay updated on the 2013 Mammoth Christmas Light Parade or Mammoth AZ Bulletin Board Facebook pages.
