GREENVILLE--Though it is only July, plans are already taking shape for the 2012 Hometown Holiday Horse Parade slated for November 17 in Downtown Greenville. This annual tradition for the Greenville community has kicked off the holiday season for the downtown district the past nine years!
The lighted event boosts 50+ horse entries which brings an estimated 8,000 spectators into the downtown area. Since the first parade in 2004, Main Street Greenville has been coordinating the event with great assistance from numerous volunteers within the community. This year is no different as many groups and individuals passionate about horses and the festive atmosphere of the parade are stepping up to make this an even more hometown tradition.
In addition; many businesses and organizations assist with sponsoring the parade. Bob Evans, for one, is allowing July 27-29 to be a Community Fundraiser for the Hometown Holiday Horse Parade where they will donate 15% of sales when the Dine To Make A Difference flyer is presented. The flyer can be printed off from www.DowntownGreenville.org or facebook.com/mainstreetgreenville.With Bob Evans support, along with many other community-minded sponsors, the parade is able to take place. For more information, or if interested in being a sponsor, contact Amber Schmerge, director of Main Street Greenville, 548-4998.
