The Superior Optimist Club will host its eighth annual Miracle on Main St. Christmas Parade on Saturday, Dec.1, 2012.
The event will begin at 3 p.m. with food booths opening and entertainment. The theme of the parade and event this year is Christmas in Superior. Event organizers felt that this theme would be a good theme for everyone to participate in the parade and celebrate the many traditions of Christmas in Superior.
The Optimist would like to encourage families, clubs and businesses to enter the parade. There is no fee to participate in the parade; entries can be floats, vehicles or equestrian.
Non-motorized entries will need to make special arrangements. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three entries: $100 for first place, $75 for second place and $50 for third place.
The entertainment for this year is focused on celebrating the many talents of Superiorites. If you love to sing, dance, or act consider signing up for the Superior Has Talent Showcase.
Baile Folklorico Alma de Superior is already scheduled to perform that afternoon at 4 p.m.
Any local nonprofit group wishing to host a fundraising or educational booth during the event may do so at no charge but may be required to pay other permit fees to the Town of Superior or Pinal County depending on the type of booth.
This year the club will be hosting a Best Cookie contest. The categories for the best cookie contest are Best Chocolate Chip, Best Oatmeal Cookie, Best Decorated Cookie and Best Other Holiday Cookie.
A $25 gift card will be awarded to the best cookie in each category. There will also be a youth art show during the event.
