MARIETTA, OH. (WTAP) - The Merry-Etta Christmas parade is Saturday, November 25, 2023 at 6 p.m.

Lineup starts at 4:00 p.m. back behind the College football stadium. The line up is first come, first serve.

Those still wanting to participate in the parade can still register for the parade for $75. The lower registration fee ended on November 18th.

This year’s theme is “Christmas in Toyland.”

If you’re participating, candy must be handed out, not thrown from floats or vehicles.

Jen Tinkler, the executive director of Marietta Main Street, said this year’s route is about a block longer. This is due to the number of participants last year!
