Shelbyville's annual Christmas parade will be held in Shelbyville on Dec. 5, and the parade is encouraging groups to enter floats.

Assistant Shelby County Fire Chief Jeff Ivers, who is heading up the organization of the parade, said civic groups and organizations are encouraged to join the parade this year.

"Our theme this year is Christmas Magic, and we will be giving first-, second- and third-place prizes for floats," he said.

"Our goal this year is to have more floats."

Anyone wishing to be in the parade should contact either Ivers as soon as possible, he said, at 633-6648.

The parade will begin at the fairgrounds at 10 a.m.
